Under the capable management of 

Sieve Kosakowski, the softball league 
has gained popularity and will con- 
tinue right up to our commencement 

It will be then that the two top 
teams in the league will oppose each 
other for the title. 

To date, the Alpha Tau Gamma 
nam managed by Vernon Brooks 
have yet to suffer a defeat save for 
a protest and will be the team to beat. 

Also running in competition with 
A.T.G. is the Animal Husbandry 
team, managed by Ralph Souza, which 
ha.- also won all games except for a 
much disputed protest which will 
have been played off at this writing. 
The teams from Vegetable Gardening 
and Floriculture have shown well but 
have met defeat the hard way.

Redmen Win Over Bates 
Would Even Series, 8 -Up 

One of the lightest teams in U. of M. history will open its

against the Bates' Bobcats. 


Eek'fl charges will be spotting the 
heavy Bates line forty pounds per

first night game ever played by a 
football team from the University. 

Lack of Reserves 

Lack of reserve line material is 
li Eck's main worry, along with 
a few pre-season injuries. Eck is con- 
fident of his first team owing to their 
-in.' showing at the recent Williams' 
scrimmage, but he is worried about 
the inexperience of the reserve lines- 

Several players are on the doubt- 
ful list as the opening game ap- 
proaches. Don Sisson injured a leg 
in the Williams' scrimmage, and it is 
doubtful that he will be available for 
even limited punting duties. Dick

Business Bigger, Better 

We get the idea this week, what with all the running and 
shouting hereabout, that the school is in business again. And with 
the figures from the dean's office before us it looks like this year 
business is bigger than ever. Whether it will be better than ever 
is something to be seen, but with a few important facts in mind 
we'll predict that this campus is about to enjoy the best year it 
has yet known despite the problems of a record enrollment. 

Having been faced with increasingly large enrollments dur- 
ing the past three years, the administration is now better able to 
handle the large amount of detail required to house and feed and 
otherwise provide adequate facilities for this great number of 

There is still the problem of housing but it is not so acute 
as it was last year. Another new dorm is ready for occupancy and 
two more are being constructed. The latter, although still some 
months from completion, together with the faculty-student hous- 
ing project also under construction, should provide the answer 
to the university's housing needs, at least for the next few years. 

Another bright spot at the beginning of this academic year 
is the addition of 59 new members to the faculty. The new group 
will take over some of the large load of work being carried by the 
present faculty and also should allow the possibility of smaller 
classes which are much needed in some divisions, particularly in 
the freshman curriculum. 

While toting up the benefits, we can also mention the new 
Physics Lab and the Engineering Lab, now ready for use, which 
means added classroom and laboratory space for the engineering 
department, an over-crowded unit which has conducted classes 
in practically every place but the president's office during the 
past few years. 

A record number of students does present problems but it 
also can and should mean a more active and therefore more en- 
joyable campus. We believe that it will. 

To The Freshmen 

To the freshmen we offer the official welcome of the Collegian. 
We believe you'll like this campus, it's a pretty good place to be. 
In numbers you are a unique class, a record class. The advice we 
give here is hardly unique, yet it applies to you as it has applied 
to other freshman classes who have read it in Collegian editorials. 
In two words: Work hard. 

New Record Set in 
2 Summer Terns 

In the line with the record attend- 
ance figures this fall, UM summer 
school attendance during the term 
just finished also set a new record 
it was reported this week by Dean 
William L. Machmer. 

Two six week sessions were attend- 
ed by a combined total of 78»> stu- 
dents, some 200 more than the 
previous high attendance set last 
summer. This figure is seven times 
the pre-war summer school attend- 

Dean Machmer stated that the 
number attending was much higher 
than had been expected and that it 
was outstanding considering that fact 
that there had been no advertising 
campaign for the summer courses. 


Hillel announces an all-campus 
reception at Mem Hall, Wednes- 
day, Sept. 28, at 7:30 p.m. 

A skit will be presented and a 
social evening and refreshments 
will follow. 

He also added that courses this 
year were quite varied and more 
extensive than in other years. The 
schools of Liberal Arts, Business 
Administration, Science and Horti- 
culture were all well attended as were 
courses in math and food technology. 
Although no regular activities pro- 
gram was scheduled, a student-faculty 
committee arranged a highly success- 

! ful barbecue and a picnic as well as 
severs! dances. 

A performance of the opera "Arun- 

j del," staged by a traveling company, 
was also part of the summer's enter- 
tainment schedule. 


We Want 'Em 

Hi ya keeds — all ye old and new 
campus-ites. Do you have troubles? 
Are you burdened with unexpressed 
gripes and groans. We have estab- 
lished a crab-sheet otherwise known 
as "Brick-Bats." 

If you have anything on your 
chest, this is your safety-valve. Let 
off steam here! 

Of course, if it isn't fit to print, 
then write it. 

Us'n of the CeflSfSSS will welcome 
any constructive (that means some- 
thing that integrates, not disinte- 
grates) criticsm. 

The price is low; this is your beef- 
page. If your marks are low, if your 
best girl becomes ex, if your home 
burns down, if the chaplain is busy, 
write us. 

Just one word of caution — we'd 
appreciate your John Hancock and 
not John Smith. 

Picnic Gives Frosh 
View of UM Life 

The freshmen class was introduced 
to its first taste of campus life Tues- 
day night at the senate-sponsored 
picnic. Our senate members were on 
hand to serve the new class. 

The program was divided in two 
parts: a picnic supper and enter- 
tainment put on by the various mu- 
sical guides directed by Professor 

The frosh have a slight edge on 
their superiors in that they were the 
first to see our new female cheer- 
leaders in action — let's face it; this 
is a women's age — gone are our mas- 
culine rally leaders. 

Bob Leavitt, senate president, was 
in charge of the program and Bill 
Starkweather acted as master of 
ceremonies. The freshmen were ad- 
dressed by the heads of the campus 
musical groups. Among the invited 
guests were Dean Machmer, Dean 
Curtis and Dean Hopkins. 

In closi „, the class of 'SV sang 
"Twilight" and our "Alma Mater." 

Members of the Statesman 

Ex-members of the Statesman 
are invited to join the Collegian 
staff. As experienced workers in 
collegiate newspaper work, no 
competitors period will be neces- 
sary for those who desire to come 
out for the Collegian. 

If interested, former Statesmen 
are invited to come to the Colle- 
gian meeting, Memorial Hall, this 
afternoon at five, or on Monday or 
Tuesday afternoon next week.

Mr. Troy, who was born in Somer- 
ville, Massachusetts, in 1909, spent 
the early part of his life in Boston. 
In 1931 when the university was still 
known as Mass. Aggie, Troy re- 
ceived his B.S. in English. An open- 
ing in the English department occur- 
red the very same year, and thus 
Troy began his teaching career. He 
received his master's degree at Am- 
herst College in 1935. Although most 
of his education was acquired in Am-

Longtime Member of UM Staff 

With the exception of three y.-.,,, 
when he was a visiting professor at 
Amherst College, Troy has been a 
member of the University English 
department since his graduation. Nov 
an Associate Professor, he teaches aa 
English survey course and several 
upper class courses, including Lit. r- 
ature of the Renaissance, and The 
Age of Johnson. He is now making 
plans to teach a new course in world

Appropriately enough, Troy's hob- 
by is reading, and he is especially in- 
terested in works written between the 
Renaissance and the 18th century. 
Once in Merchant Marine 

Service in the Merchant Marine 
gave Professor Troy an excellent op- 
portunity for travel. As a seaman, he 
traveled to England, Ireland, Green- 
land and Cuba. He joined the Marine 
in the summer of 1942 and sailed 
until he was injured in 1944 and hos- 
pitalized in Halifax until 1945. A 
flying hatch cover had struck him,

service. The second semester of r.»4.'> 
found him back as an instructor at 
the University.

year has been switched entirely to 
quarterback this year, but is also on 
the doubtful-injury list for the first 
gHM, Jack Payne, second string end, 
is out with a twisted ankle, and Ev 
Johnston, who scored the only touch- 
down against Bates last year, has 
injured tendons in his ankle and is 
also on the doubtful list. 

Potential Starters 
Bob Bulcock, a blocking back last 
year, has been switched to end and 
is slated to start at right end. Bob 
Warren, and Johnny Nichols will 
probably hold down the tackle posi- 
tions. Both are lettermen from last 
year's squad. Co-Captain Bob Pacini 
will be at right guard, and either 
Al Bazur, an ex-Oevens letterman, or 
Fran Driscoll should be at left guard. 
Bud Estelle, another letterman from 
last year's squad is the probable 
starting center.

halfback posts and Co-Captain 
"Sunt" Struzziero has been switched 
from right half to the fullback slot. 
If Dick (Jloason is unable to ■tart 
at quarterback, the position will be 
filled by Ray Cagnon, a three letter- 
man last year. 

Hal Feinman, the heaviest back on 
the team will undoubtedly see a lot 
of action, and will probably do the 
panting if Sisson is not available. 

Hates' Line Heavy 

The Hates Bobcats will stack a 
210 pound line from tackle to tackle 

againat the Redman, while the Ifaana- 
chusettsmen will only average 179. 
Bates has lost the fabulous Art Blan- 
chard, but they are recompensed by a 
fellow named Boone who is reported 
to be a real speed merchant in the 
backfield. Coach Ducky Pond is sup- 
posed to install a two team system 
this year against the Redmen, and he 
still has his outstanding end, Dick 
Scott, who turned in the fine per- 
formance against our squad last year. 

Can Tie Series 

The Eckmen are especially gunning 
for a victory this year because it will 
even up the series with Bates that 
was started in 1901. If the Redmen 
can come through, it will even the 
score at eight games for each team 
and one scoreless tie.

Soccer Squad Meets Dartmouth 
In Opening Contest Tomorrow 

Looking Things Over 

By Russ Broude 

Addresses of greetings are usually 
styled and phrased in the optimistic, 
and as such, this does not differ in 
substance or form. It is, however, 
tempered by a grave note as well, 
and addressed to upperclassnion a. 
well as the entering class. 

Those not newcomers on campus 
are all too familiar with athletics 
here, and many freshmen know or 
will hear much on that score before 
they've settled at the UM for long. 

We have a full program of varsity 
and junior varsity sports here. This 
ptogram deserves and requires full 
student (faculty and Administra 
tion) support — win, lose or tie. Tha 
support must be based on the pres- 
ent and future, not on the past. This 
idea, well expressed recently by Joe 
McCarthy, is that 'the past is in the 
records already, and nothing can be 
done about it. Each game must and 
will be played for and in itself.' 

Past Is Dead 

Whatever our past, we can d<> 
nothing about it. We cannot live in 
th* past. The records are indeed in 
the books. But the future is just be- 
ginning and our sports future de- 
pends a great deal on support. The 
golden harvest of victory may be 
just as close around the corner as 
the spectre of defeat. The final re- 
sult may well turn on the sincerity 
of the cheering stands. 

A new school year merits a new 
start, free from any past misunder- 
standing or prejudice. September all 
over the country in all colleges is the 
time for renewed hope, optimism and 
faith, and it is to be desired that 
new students on campus discount 
what they hear and judge on what 
they see from the stands. Student 
support has never harmed a team. 
Lack of it has hurt many.

board ticket plan at campus dining 

As the semester ticket plan is out- 
lined, the total charge for a whole 
semester is $143.50. In order to ac- 
commodate many students who de- 
sire to spread their expenditures 
over a longer period, the sum may 
be paid in two installments, the first 
of $84 covering the period to the 
Thanksgiving recess, and the second 
of $59.50, taking care of the remain- 
der of the semester. 

Last year the boarding halls 

plan for meals, at a rate of $20 per 
ticket book, An increase of $2..">0 pot- 
hook was tried for a while but many 
of the students turned to off-campus 
restaurants for meals, and the rate 
was returned to the original $20. 

A comparison of the two systems 
reveals the weakness and strong 
point of each. The two-week ticket 
book had the advantage of enabling 
the student to pay only for the meals 
ho actually consumed. The fluctua- 
tions of the ticket book system from 
week to week created serious diffi- 
culties in dining hall planning how- 

Conversely, la the lemsstsr mssl 

plan the .student pays for all nieaU 
in the semester, (ezelusivs <>!' those 
on weekends) whether the student 
eats them or not. No rebates SIS al- 

With funds and attendance estab- 
lished in advance, dining hall man- 
agement should be able to pass on 
the advantages of long raiitfe plan- 
ning to the campus diners.

of those diners who did not purchase 
meal tickets but who take occasional 
meals on campus.

2 More Alumni-Built Dormitories 

To Be Ready By Second Semester 

An expanding U of M campus will receive the use of five new buildings— part of an $8,000,000 
program— during this semester, according to a statement made by President Van Meter In ' his 
opening address at convocation last Thursday. 

Three of the buildings, Hasbrouck Physics Laboratory, Gunness Engineering Laboratory and 
Brooks House, a dorm, were read y for use as the semester started. Two additional dorms will be 

ready before the second semester 

In addition to the three completed 
structures and the two in advunced 
stages of construction, work is going 
ahead on a $600,000 student-faculty 
apartment house, a $618,000 animal 
pathology building, a $500,000 wing 
to the main engineering building, and 
a $1,361,000 power plant and utility 

Program Authorized in 1946 
The $8,193,750 building program 
was authorized by the Commonwealth, 
Federal Government and the Alumni 
Building Corporation in 1946, the 
government investing $600,000, the 
the state $5,143,750 and the Alumni 
Association $2,450,000. The latter 
figure includes appropriations for 
H'veral dorms in the period between 
1939 and 1946. 

The alumni Corporation finances the 
dormitory buildings on a self-liquidat- 
ing basis. The dorms are paid for by 
student rent and will eventually be- 
come the property of the state with- 
out cost to the taxpayers. 

The $8,000,000 program shades into 
insignificance the investments in the

Maroon Key Demands 
Honest Rope Pull 

The annual freshman vs. sopho- 
more rope pull will be conducted im- 
mediately after the Norwich game 
this Saturday afternoon, Oct. 1. 

Last year's rope pull was farcical 
from beginning to end. The sopho- 
mores tied the rope to the rear of a 
jeep while the freshmen proceeded to 
secure their end to a telephone pole. 
When the contest was over, no one 
knew who did what to which to 
whom and why. 

After reviewing last year's fiasco, 
the Maroon Key has decided to lay 
down definite laws in regard to the 
pull. There will be fifty men on each 
team, and spotters to check for 
cheating — actually, the Maroon Key 
is confident that there won't be any. 
However, should there be any, it will 
be reported to a neutral judge who 
will forfeit the pull to the other 
team. It really looks like we're going 
to witness an honest rope pull for a 
change. Rumor has it, that there 
hasn't been one for three years. 

This is a big day for the freshmen 
for if Lhey come out victors they can 
discontinue the wearing of beanies, 
but if they lose they will have to 
wear them until Thanksgiving. 

Classes To Elect 
Officers Oct. 17th 

Flection of class officers for this 
year will be held on Monday, OctO- 
ber 17th. If there are more than five 
candidates for any one office, pri- 
mary elections will be held on that 
date and finals a week later. Voting 
will be conducted according to class- 
es, the times and places to be an- 
nounced later. 

According to the constitution of 
the Student Government, "nomina- 
tions for class officers shall be se- 
cured by typewritten petition signed

Hope PuB— Tradition or Flop 

Next Saturday, immediately following the Norwich game, 
freshmen and sophomores will tug for the honor of their classes 
in the traditional rope pull across the college pond. 

Time was when the rope pull was the highlight of the fresh- 
man hazing program. If the freshmen were lucky enough to win. 

it meant that haling was over; if not, more days of morning sere- 
nades and inside-OUt clothes were in order. But whatever the out- 
come, the rope pull was always one of the most colorful and better 
traditions on campus. 

For the last few years, however, the rope pull has degenerated 
Into a complete farce, and not a very well planned farce at that. 
Members of the opposing teams have lined up 150 men when only 
oil were called for; they have tied the rope to trees, telephone poles 
and even jeeps; and have even tfone so far as to drain the water 
out of the college pond in order to turn the whole affair into one 
sloppy, mismanaged mess. 

Wo would like to see Saturday's rope pull become a real con- 
test and not a repetition of last year's fiasco. If the Maroon Key 
can keep to its promise made this week and see that their rules 
are observed, and if the members of the freshman and sophomore 
classes will go to it in better spirit, perhaps the rope pull can be- 
come a real campus tradition again. 

New Matters to be Voted 

We are pleased to note that the Student Senate in its first 
meeting of the semester has shown its awareness of a varied list 
of campus problems. More, it indicated a readiness to immediately 
set about finding remedies for the troubles, both major and minor, 
which it will meet in the next year. 

The measure, passed at this meeting, concerning the method 
of choosing members for the Student Life committee presents a 
definite improvement Allowing, as it does, for the popular election 
of members for this important group the proposed amendment is 
more in keeping with the stated democratic aims of our student 
government. We expect to see this change approved without dif- 
ficulty when it is voted on by the students in the primary balloting 
for class officers on October 17. 

Mention of voting recalls the fact that the senate at this 
first meeting was convening under the terms of the old constitu- 
tion inasmuch as the revised constitution which was offered to 
the student body last spring failed to be accepted simply because 
there were not enough people voting. That sorry occasion saw- 
almost unanimous acceptance of the constitution by some 1200 
people at the polls, but the new document could not be accepted 
because the total vote was some thirty ballots short of the fifty 
per cent of eligible voters requi ed for acceptance. 

This is a poor showing. I should not be repeated, neither in 
the class primary elections no in the finals when the new consti- 
tution will again be handed to the voters.

Campus Police 

It seems that the Campus Cops 
have Suc c ee ded in making at least 
one strike against the friendly cam- 
pus spirit against the first week of 
school. While checking drivers com- 
mitting misdemeanors during the 

first few confused and hectic days of 

school the cops maintained ■ toug'i 
and bullying attitude which was cer- 
tainly unnecessary and uncalled for. 
The cops informed the student driv- 
en that having a car mi the campus 
is the driver's passport to he entered 
in the black list of the shiny button 
and bad disposition brigade.

traffic problem here Ofl the campus

By now for upperclassmen, Regis 
t ration Day is an accustomed grind, 
a masterpiece of trivia devised to de- 
fray our already snaky belief in the 
absolutism of our pedagogic friends. 

For the freshman, untouched, un- 
tried, unshaven, with the mould of 
secondary schooling still clinging to 
his fuzzy little cheeks, Registration 
is a new crossroads into Life. Aver- 
age Frankie Frosh's introduction to 
Registration is standing outside the 
Phys Ed cage for hours in an exasper- 
ating simile of a slow motion Ring- 
around-the-Rosie game. Despite Mil- 
ton's claim, this waiting only serves 
as a chance for all frosh to gaze in 
awe at those lofty pillars of campus- 
ity — the seniors. 

Sad Time 

For the Upperclassman, this wait- 
ing is ameliorated by the consoling 
fact that he can look around with a 
leer at some early rising woman he's 
been cheating on all summer. All 
Frankie can do is to survey the crop 
of relative beauties and sadly re- 
member that the girls who come to 
college are those who couldn't grab 
a man in high school. 

Finally (finally is adverb of time 
denoting passage of two hours) 
Frankie gets to the beginning of the 
line where he is met by an array of 
signs urging "Take two", Take five", 
"Take ten". So he takes ten of each

when he can gently bounce a soggy 
Hutterfield lunch around the track 
for an hour. He is saved from this 
fate, however, because CREM is only 
offered then— on into the night, so 
he switches PHYS ED back to H and 
takes MIL at 9, but LIT is only of- 
fered at 8 and 9 so he has to change 
one or the other. He he's brave and 
signs up for soccer. Ah college! \\, 
wonder so many men dig ditches. 

After five hours, Frankie is re- 
markably through (until class day

Saturday classes.

Chi 0's Help at Sig. Ep. 
In Return For Fire Aid 

A group of dungaree-garbed girls 

from Chi Omega, heavily armed with 
dust rags, mops, wash pails, and 
paint brushes invaded the new Sig 
Ep house located at 9 Chestnut St. 
Ofl Tuesday and W r ednesday of last 
week. The purpose of the visit was 
an amicable one, however, as the 
girls dropped in to lend a helping 
hand to the Sig BpS by washing win- 
dows, varnishing stairs, painting bu- 
Jreaus, and polishing furniture. 

The new house, purchased last 
spring from Lloyd Walsh, a local 
businessman, is still in the process of 
redecoration and renovation. Si nee

yaids from their own fifteen to the 
Bate* thirteen in seven plays, but a 
fumble temporarily delayed a score. 
Oleason took another jump pass 
from Struzziero, chugging twenty 
yards to the Hates forty-nine, and 
Beaumont hacked and squirmed 
twenty more to feature the push. 

The V of M got the hreak back 
shortly afterwards at the start of 
the fourth period when Hulcock 

recovered ■ Batei fumble on the 
home team's twenty-five. A play lat- 
er Anderson went twenty-four yards 
on a reverse around left end for the 
■econd tally. Andy dropped the ball 
OK the handotr but coolly tucked it in 
when it took a nice hop and gunned 
for the corner untouched. The point 
after attempt by Rogeri was blocked. 

The Bobcats, trying to get back In- 
to the ball game, opened up their 

passing attack, got almost to mid- 
ri< Id. but had their hearts broken 
when Anderson intercepted. Starting, 
tl i he fifty, Ev Johnston and Hal 
Ficnman lugged to the five in eight 
plays with Johnston taking it over 
from there. Anderson split the mid- 
dle for the nineteenth point. The red 
hot Redmen really worked the fast- 
tiring Bobcat line over during this 
drive and from that point on kept 
thing! well in hand. 

The Mates attack, except for the 
Opening minutes of the game, was 

iii potent, gaining only sixty-eight 
ya da on the ground. They present- 
ed a fine runner in Walker Heap but 
the heralded N'at,- Boone was treat-

The Redmen stuck mostly to the 

kighl ituff in piling op 219 yards 
on the ground and a fourteen to

th< big ground gainers. Johnston's

Record Turnout As 78 

Freshmen Answer Call Look ing ™»g* Over 
For Yearling Squad 

Football received a decided boost 

here at the U. M. last week when 78 
freshman candidates, a record post- 
war turnout, were on hand to meet 
Coach I.orin E. "Red" Hall. Coach 
Hall has been highly successful over 
the past two seasons with his Froth 
elevens, both teams finishing the sea- 
undefeated. More than half of 

these Froth were outstanding high 
■choo] footballers in their own right 
and Coach Hall hopes that they will 
keep the win streak alive. Among 
tl tee reporting were: 

William Hakey, N'or'h Adams, All- 
Berkshire center at Drury high 

school; George Bicknell, East Wey- 
mouth. All-South Shore tackle at 
Weymouth; Charles Francos, Lynn, 
All-North Shore tackle for two years

Not only did last week's Maine 
trip end up with a victory and high 
spirits for the Redmen, hut the team 
(and those who tagged along) ap- 
parently had ■ good time the whole 
weekend. Rain, however, cancelled 
the trip from Portland, where the 
eleven stayed, to Auburn, for a Fri- 
day night high-school game which 
they were supposed to tee, and 
washed out the under-thc-light prac- 
tice that the grid giantl were sup- 
posed to have. .Just one look at the 
final score and it's easy enough to see 
they didn't miss it. 

The news from Maine was a Rood 
New (School) Years present. Here's 
hoping that the momentum gathered 
gainl as the season progresses. Sat- 
urday has the Redmen well favored. 
by about three td's at hast. 

Note to Redmen, Red Sox (and 

pardon the expression) Yankee 

fans: Next weekend's big league 
game OB Saturday may be a Strong 
attraction, but there will be plenty 
of portables in the stands. Latch on 
to one yourself and hit the trail for 
Alumni Field. Also tune into WMUA 
occasionally and hear our own (fame 
on the radio. Bert Klein wants to 
know how it sounds. He'll do the 

Action at Bates same last Saturday night which Redmen won, 19-0. 
Marty Anderson (34), sweeps around left end as unidentified Bates 
players close in to stop the advance.

Notes On Bates Game 

Warren and Nichols did iron man 
duty in the line . . . Terrific tackling 
by end Phil Roth and by backers up 
Bulcock and Heaulac . . . The defen- 
se,, backfield of Beaulac, Desautels, 
Anderson, Gagnon, and McManus 
broke up twelve of fourteen Bates 
passes . . . Handy Andy carried the 
ball only twice, once for a Tl), but 
he intercepted two passes and played 
a great all-around game. 

The team came out of the fray in 
remarkably fine shape, Ape Warren's 
rather Severe shoulder bruise being 
the worst of only minor injuries. 

New athletic director Warren Mc- 
Guirk was presented with the game 
ball by the players. 



Norwich Losing Streak 
To Be Kept Intact 
. . . So It Figures 

Smarting from a 64*6 shellacking 
at th ( . hands of Williams, the Nor- 
wich Cadets will sneak into town 
sometime Saturday to do battle with 
a small but scrappy l'. M. eleven at 
Alumni Field. On the basis of their 
decisive 19-0 win at Hates last Sat- 

U day the Redmen should take the 

\ ermontera in stride. 

Norwich had a poor team last 
year, winning only one game. Their 
lom victory came at the expense of 
a visiting U M. squad. However, at 
thi> time last year the Norwich Ca- 
dets were also big underdogs, were 
ci mpletely outclassed from start to 
finish, but the Gods of Fortune 
smiled, nay, grinned broadly on the 
Kaydets, enabling them to squeak 
through by the narrowest of mar- 

This Saturday, however, the Red- 
men expect to be practically at full 
st length and entertain no thought of 
leaving the victory trail. The only 
U. M. casual ity last Sa'urday under 
the arcs at Lewiston was tackle Bob 
Warren, who suffered a bruised 
shoulder. It is possible that he may 
be in shape to play Saturday. 

The Dartmouth soccer team b 
its way to a 3-1 victory on Alumn; 
Field last Saturday afternoon. With- 
standing many attacks by the Brifga, 
men, the Indians capitalized on 
goals given to them as gifts, 
their first two points were s< 
off the boots of two Redmen (under 
this condition, the Dartmouth pli 
who last touched the ball was _ 
credit for the goal.) 

UM took the initiative in the open. 
ing period but was unable to pan 
effectively enough to score. Dart. 
mouth made good use of accurate 
kicks and although they were on d>- 1 
fente most of the game, they invar 
ably beat their opponents to th 
when the pressure was on. 

Massachusetts opened right U] 
drove the ball down to the Dartn 
goal. Red Winton shot, but wtl 
able to get it past the opposing go 
A few minutes later. Red shot a. 
but missed a close one. 

CartW, Jorge Stand Out 

The Redmen continued the 
for the first fifteen minutes at 
looked as if Dartmouth was in fi 
trouncing. Toward the end 
period the Big Green found it 
selves and began to pour it on. \\ 
successive long boots, they got w 
scoring distance, only to be Bto] 
by fullbacks Kmbler and Jorge. R 
Carew and Lin Jorge played good 
fense by continually taking the 
away from the Indians. Howevei 

one of these plays, a Kassachusetti 
defender kicked the ball into his 
net in an attempt to break up 
Dartmouth attack. 

Dartmouth Scores Again 

Dartmouth now took the . 
scoring early in a mad scrambl 
front of the I'M cage. Soon after. j 
Hart, of Dartmouth, got off 
good accurate kicks and 
Ring* to get a clear shot at A! I 
ham. Al was unable to stop tin balJ 
but had been making fine saves and! 
continued to do so throughout ' 

The Briggtmen then went 
offense again, but failed to .- 
a penalty kick and two shots by To 
Fern Ira. Near the end of the p 
Winton dribbled the ball up the fteM;| 
made a good pass to Hank ( . 
who tried desperately to score bu: 
missed by a few inches. 

See-Saw Battle 
In the 3rd quarter the li< 
again opened up fast, with Ralph Ca- 
rew displaying good heading and drib-| 
bling but still unable to find a team- 
mate in the clear. The remainder >if| 
the period was a see-saw battle, with J 
Joe Durante in there breaking jpl 
Dartmouth passes. At the end of thel 
session Winton and Kulas combined! 
to stage a passing exhibition only '• 
be stopped by goalie Saxton.

WMUA completely rebuilt and 
modernized campus radio station, is 
expected to hit the air waves next 
week. Plans for the season include 
broadcasts of ball games both home 
and away. 

If WMUA had none of its present 
facilities, and wished to duplicate 
them, it would have to make pur- 
chases exceeding $10,000. However, by 
judicious use of war surplus material, 
new material, and the painstaking 
labor of its staff, WMUA has succeed- 
ed in becoming a model station. The 
station's only drawback is its awk- 
ward location on the top floor ,,f the 
administration building. 

Console Worth $3,500 
WMUA's master console, built by 
Danghill, Rerguson, and Carlson, ex- 
actly duplicates the commercial pro- 
duct costing $3,500. Provision exists 
for handling two studios and (\ remote 
locations from one master control 
board. Two programs may originate 
from the station at any time, and, in 
addition, recordings on tape and discs 
may be made simultaneously. 

Telephones will be installed in all 
studios, offices, and the control room. 
The system will work on an original 
design by the engineering staff. 

All tubes will operate on direct cur- 
rent filament supplies rather than on 
the conventional alternating current. 
Thus hum will be reduced in the sta- 
tion's output. 

Control room equipment consists of 
three large cabinets containing the 
two transmitters, power supplies, 
monitoring circuits, and the apparatus 
which amplifies the output of the 
microphone to high power for im- 
preting the speech and music on the 

The master control panel rests on 
the back center of a specially built 
desk. It is tilted for ease in viewing 
the meter in its center. At each side 
of the panel is located a new dual 
Speed "presto" transcription turntable 
with two arms. One arm plays the 
conventional recordings and transcrip- 
tions while the other plays the new 
long playing records by Columbia. 
Underneath the transcription turn- 
tables are special large drawers which 
pull out to place the records and 
transcription at the operator's elbows 
so that he might pick out the records 
previously placed there for the pro- 
gram under way! The desk was built 
by Robert Cox of the engineering 
staff of WMUA. 

To the right rear of the operator a 
16 inch dual speed recording unit is 
located together with the tape re-

Every microphone has its own am-

goes to the master control panel A

of sound emanating from the micio- 
phone. Above the gain control is a 
■'! position switch that places the mi- 
crophone into one of the two operat- 
ing channels. If WMUA goes KM this 
will be employed. 

Two methods of communication will 
be used between studios and control 
room. Microphones can be switched 
into a special amplifier called the 
"talk-back" amplifier which allows 
two-way conversation. Telephone com- 
munication will comprise the other 
method. Earphones and loudspeakers 

will be located throughout the station 
so that the "on the air" programs 
may be heard. 

The station has been divided into 
five separate functional /.ones. The

ball into Dartmouth territory. But 
Coach Tom Dent's booters staved off

For Dartmouth, Hopkins and Fan-

Live Reptiles, Monkeys, Turtles 
In Odd Sideshow At Fernald Hall 

By Clare Tully 

Step right this way, folks, for a 
most fascinating show right here on 
campus under our very own noses. 
If you are like about half the popu- 
lation you may never have seen the 
inside of Fernald Hall, which houses 
said collection of wonders. Huckster 
L, M. Bartlett will lead the way and 
the first stop will be the exhibit 
cases directly inside the door of the 
Zoo building. 

Among the mounted birds are rep- 
resentatives of all the major fields, 
along with such interesting birds as 
the Mexican .jacana whose long 
claws enable him to skip away from 
his enemies via lily pads and whose 
enemies are defeated by pointed 
spurs on his wings; the Coromant, 
which the Chinese used to fish 
with, and the beautiful Scarlet Ihis. 

Nature recreation and zoo majors 
an planning to design an exhibit for 
the front cases on the theme "Birds 
of Amherst". Passing birds, winter 
birds, year-round birds, and summer 


This list includes the names of stu- 
dents whose averages for the College 
year 1948-1949, second semester, were 
NO per cent or higher.

damaged the walls and furnishings in 
one room of the McKenna apartment, 
N-l Federal Circle, early last Thurs-

The fire, which started about 1:15

was extinguished by other circle res-

Rise Stevens, the brilliant and beautiful mezzo-soprano 7>f 
international fame, will open the UM concert season with her ap- 
pearance here next Tuesday evening. 

This concert by the still-rising star of the Met, screen and 
radio is expected to bring a sellout crowd of students, faculty, and 
townspeople to the Phys. Ed. Cage. The performance begins at 
8:00 p.m. 

Miss Stevens, famed for her work 
in three successful pictures and on 
network broadcasts, is also known to 
the public as the first of a coterie of 
lovely young stars of the Metro- 
politan Opera Company has lately 
added to its rolls. 

This trend which occasioned much 
talk in the opera world, was inaugu- 
rated by the company's directors in 
an effort to make the female I. ads 
at the Met look worthy of all the 
fuss and palpitation they occasion 
among the tenors and baritones. 

One of Miss Stevens' favorite rvisi 
provides a good point of study for 
this change, "Carmen", she of smug- 
gling and AWOL infamy, is supposed 
to be a beautiful, passionate Spanish

Two in A Row 

A new set of congratulations to the football team after last Saturday's 
spectacular 54-0 win would probably be nothing more than unnecessary 
verbiage. The team itself, by its performance, is saying all that really means 
anything. And we suspect that the eight touchdowns scored last Saturday 
are as much Reward as the Kedmen ask for their efforts. 

We would like to add, however, a few notes to last week's editorial when 
we mentioned the spirit displayed by the team in its first victory over a heav- 
ier Baies eleven. After witnessing last week's sparkling showing we will re- 
state the fact that it has spirit and also add that this is an aggregation which 
looks like it has really got the goods. 

This is a versatile team; a team which runs and passu with better than 
average ability, which blocks and tackles with authority. And it's a smart 
squad; it made few tactical errors last Saturday, and did not appear to make 
any mistake twice. By virtue of its ability, it is also a confident team; as one 
instance we nole the way it bounced back immediately after every one of the 
numerous penalties received last week. The large amount of yardage lost this 
way was the only defect in the performance, and against | stronger opponent 
than Norwich it could be the clinker which damages an otherwise effective 
machine. This trouble is minor, however, and should be easily corrected. 

Another happy development was the showing hy the "bench", which went 
nit and did as fully an effective job as did the starters. If may be that the 
learn is lacking not so much in depth as was thought a week ago. 

Considering the evidence of the first two games, and after a cursory 
glance at the early season performances of our remaining opponents, (we 
have just got in a new supply of cursory glances) it is our belief that! his 
year's football squad has the ability to be just at good as it needs to be on any 
particular Saturday this fall. Bates and Norwich were not especially strong 
opponents, but last year we barely got by Bates 7-6; this year it was a three

Rope Pull — A Tradition Again 


Line Crashers 

Dear Editor: 

We eat in Draper. We are "mad" 
at the freshman girls for crashing the 
chow line. It's unfair. We have all 
been guilty of crashing the line one 
or two at a time, but not a dozen at 
a time. The Scrolls are falling down 
on the job. One good Informative 
sign in Draper would be of more 
value than the bibs, waste baskets, 
arid teddy bears.

about. Herewith we disclose all! 

In the Beginning . . . 

Dean Marston was born in October, 
11)08 at Montague City, a well-known 
hamlet near Turners Falls, Mass. Af- 
ter completing his high school educa- 
tion at Turners Falls in 1926, he 
earned his college degree at Worces- 
ter Polytechnic Institute in H)30. Tak- 
ing time out from desk work for two 
years, he worked with the Turners 

It was the sophomore class which won the rope pull last 
week— there was no tying of the ropei to trees or telephone poles, 
no draining of the college pond, nor was there the confusion which | Secretary! Get me Van Meter 
made last year's tug-of-war laughable. 

The Collegian congratulates the Maroon Key on the efficient 
way they handled the event. Rules were followed; there was some 
way of knowing when the contest was over and who won, and 
although the sophomore line looked a bit more numerous than 
tin freshman one, we will take the Maroon Key's word for it that 
they were evenly matched. All in all, the Maroon Key and the 
members of both the freshman and sophomore classes have helped 
get one of the best campus traditions on its feet again.

Another Fire 

We wish to mention here the splendid bit of work turned in 
by the residents of Federal Circle both during and after last 
Thursday's lire in the McKenna apartment. Not only did the people 
from nearby homes do a quick and efficient job of putting the fire 
out, but the entire group of Circle dwellers joined in contributing 
to a fund which will help the family overcome its losses in clothing 
and damaged furniture. This gesture deserves a hand. 

In holding the tire to one room, the firefighters were working ,, (l . t ,, ( | to fa n in afhM . th( . kranu . for 
against the odds. There have been cases where an entire building Victory Match from the athletic field

fact that there are quile a number of wooden buildings on campus,

Tiomas Urges U. S. Counter-Attack 
[ising Russian Influence in Asia 

Native leaders trained in the dynamics of Anglo-American 
emocracy are the best counter-attacks we can make to the Rus- 
ja n influence in Asia, Dr. Winburn Thomas, expert on Asiatic 
airs and guest speaker at tonight's all-University convocation 

idealogies upon the peoples of Asia. 

Urges Support of WSSF 

Another means by which we can 
help to influence political thinking 
in Asia, Dr. Thomas said, is through 
oui contributions to the World Stu- 
dent Service Fund. Dr. Thomas is 
ar. executive of World Student Re- 
lief, an international organization of 
which WSSF, soon to make an ap- 
peal on this campus, is the American 
fund-raising arm. More important 
than the actual dollars and cents aid 
given to the Asiatic countries, he 
said, is the symbolic aid which this 
money represents. It is a way of 
showing the people of Asia, and es- 
pecially the students, that we are in- 
terested in what happens to them 
and are ready to help them, he add- 

Dr. Thomas stressed the fact that 
WSSF is virtually the only organi- 
zation which collects money for stu- 
dents and faculty members, exclusive 
of any other group. It is the only 
student faculty welfare organization 
which earmarks its resources especi- 
ally for students struggling to ge. 
ar. education against almost insur- 
mountable odds of poverty, disease, 
and famine.

r!f w today. 

Revolution Not Marxist 

pr. Thomas, who is Reconstruction 

cretary in Asia for the World's 
tsseat Christian Federation, stated 
i.iX "the growing revolution in Asia 
jiaces the United States, not on top 
[1 an exploding dynamite keg, but 
[,, a i enough to feel its reverbera- 

ns and to do something about it." 
Recording to Thomas, the revolution 

n ot Marxist-inspired, although the 
r mmunists have stepped in to give 
leadership to the uprisings. Rather, 
L revolution, which is spreading, 
Jot only in China, but throughout 
Philippines, Burma, Korea, Jap- 
and the rest of Asia, is a mass 
■■action of the people against the 
lorces which have held them down 
kouffl the centuries — war-lordism, 
Mlordism, the pressures of popu- 
|rtion, and economic conditions 

>ch have prevented industrializa- 

ii. Accentuated by the war, by the 
\ wing concept of nationalism, and 

the impact of western culture up- 
fc the life of the people, the revolu- 
I has become a "tremendous 
::undswell" which has reached 
Ijfh proportions that, in a time of 
Imposed peace, an average of one 
pencil soldier is killed every hour 

French Indo-China. 

Russians Train Leaders 

The part the Russians have played 

this program is to recognize the 
lasre of the revolution and the need 
leadership, Dr. Thomas pointed 

• They have taken thousands of 
most intelligent Asian nationals 
jrrit them to Russia for periods of 
w to ten years for a program of 

mmunist training, and then sent 
lm back to lead their peoples. The 
j Tram has had great success in 
pina, French Indo-China, and 
Ncrth Korea, and is also working 
I in Japan. 

What Dr. Thomas proposes as the 
M for any successful American 

cign policy in Asia is a similar 
aining program conducted by this 
tjntiy.' This is practically the only 
nns left, he said, by which we can 
tyres* our ideals of Anglo-Ameri- 
democracy and our political

Stresses Needs In Asia 

Dr. Thomas pointed out that the 
sole criterion for help was need, re- 
gardless of the political or religious 
affiliations of the students involved 
The need is greatest, he said, i». 
Asia, rather than Europe. Unlike ihe 
situation in Europe, the relief needs 
in Asia have not changed in the pas. 
three years. This is not an emergen- 
cy situation, but a chronic conditio 1, 
he said. European universities al- 
ready have enough ties with Ameri- 
ca; it is time now to give more of 
our ideas, interests, and financial 
aids to the students and schools of 
the Far East.

Gentlemen! You're in the army 
BCWl For Funnies, perhaps, but ar- 
my still. You may have thought you 
came to college to learn how to best 
plant your winter wheat. Maybe, to 
find how many stamens in a stolon. 
Whatever it is, the ARMY has you 
now. It's got you so let's face it. 

There are certain factors, a cer- 
tain lingo with which you must be- 
come familiar, but this takes little 
effort. It is in the capacity of inter- 
preter that I, as Sergeant Barring- 
er's pride and joy — all the more joy- 
ous since I left the course- am now 

You must learn to comport your- 
self in four settings. In uniform but 
not in class, in class, while receiving 
orders, and while assuming com- 

The first offers many problems 
that will beset you for a while. You 
ni'.tst learn at once to mingle with 
the hoi poloi. Go up to the officers 
and greet them with a slap on the 
back and a "Hi Vngie!" They will 

reaped you for it. 

While in uniform on campus you 
must keep in regard certain rules of 
conduct. YOC MUST CARRY 
MANNER. Remember the army has 
an eagle eye. I can hear now the ser- 
geant's sweet tones wafted gently 
across campus, "(Jet yer damn hands 
out o' that field jacket." 
New Dialect 

Inevitably, being in college, which 
is after all basically a school, you 
will have to go to class. You will be 
taught many new things, including 
a new dialect. Remember that 
"Youse guys" is merely the plural of 
"You men", and that "Disyer" is 
whatever is in front of the sergeant 
at the time. You will in the course 
of the course be taught the machina- 
tions of the Rifle: 

"Disyer's a rahfle, a M-l Rahfle. 
Yc use use dis tuh shoot wit'. De 
bullet comes outa dis hole in de bar- 
rel, but afore it comes out de front 

gotta open up ,|,. belt 'n slip ,„ the 
Cahtridge. Den youse shut it. But 
when youse shut it, youse gotta hold 
't 'n let go too, so's yer fingers won't 
gvt caught." At this point the s.r 
geant will probably tell you of the 
many people who have lost their 
thumbs in closing the bolt. This is 
not true. Relatively few people lose 
their thumbs each year. 

Vary important is the taking of 
commands. The sergeant on first see- 
")g you will probably K runt, "Fall 
'"•" This is the army equivalent of 
Drop Dead", and means that he is 
dissatisfied. He then will aid you 
wth a group of exercises to improve 
your figure. Right flank, left flank- 

he names it, you wiggle it. Consider- 
ation for persons with two heads is 
|"k«n in the commands right and 
left face. 

Dancing Class 
For a rest the sergeant will leud 
a dancing class with the Manuel of 
Arms. Tins is samba named aft.-r a 

Portttfueaa hem of ihe American 

The next step j s marching. Tin- 
aarte Will probably try to fool you 
and yell Forward. March! At this 
command, only men named Forward 
■J" ,,> start. This fa used to ,, s , 
whether students are placing close 
attention to commands. He will also 
I** you on mental telepathy, As yo , 
march, he calls "To the Rear. 
March!" In conjunction with this ha 
may often call out to some individual 
«Utt left" or "Butt right". At this 
command, you will turn it in the di- 
rection desi g na t e d and march with it 
I nit ways. 

After an interval, the sergeant 
will allow some of you to assume 
command. Giving commands is simi- 
lar to that of a train conductor. The 
Joh is not to let the cadet guess what 
you're saying. Instead of calmly 
bating, "Platoon, Halt" you will 
burp out "Plaa too hoo hoaeon 
Harrrck!" or "Tend toyerrear!" In 
the the wacs or the girls' drill team, 
thi* last command is altered to 

youse gotta put it in de back. Youse T'Tend to your girdles, Ladies.' 

Well that's just about all there is 
to the ROTC. Oh yes, you can trade 
y«ur demerits in at the end of the 
year for any des i red article of cloth- 
ing on the same basis as coupons. 
You know, five demerits for socks, 
t' 11 for a shirt, etc. I myself am the 
proud owner of a short coat. 


Stockbridge School 
Opens Doors to 455 

The Stockbridge School of Agricul- 
culture opened again for its thirty- 
second year on Wednesday, October S, 
with approximately 455 students en- 

Registration for the two - year 
course took place at Memorial Hall. 
An estimated 255 freshmen enrolled 
on Monday, and 200 «ieniors on Tues-

standing course in regards to the 
number of student enrollment, with 
Poultry Husbandry and Floriculture 
following in that order. 

Two outstanding courses again are 
offered this year, Arboriculture and 
Fine Turf Maintenance. The Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts is the only edu-

Clough Suffers First Defeat 
As UM Nips Huskies, 25 - 33| 

Beaumont and Anderson Pave the Way 

For Eckmen's Second Grid Victory Wreck 

Cont inu ed from peg* 1 

The aroused Redmen dominated the 
play throughout the first half and 
scored twice more on runs by Fein- 
man and F.v Johnston before the tim- 
er's horn called a cessation to the 
"hostilities," with the Redmen out in 
front 20-0 at the halftime. 

Mud Kstelle kicked off for the home 
club to usher in the second half and 
after the Norwich attack bogged 
down, the Redmen took over and 
proceeded to set sail for pay dirt. 
After a series of running plays had 
brought the locals to the Norwich 35 
yard line, Andy took a handoff from 
Oleason faded deep to his left and 
tossed | long pass to Beaumont, who 
nailed it on the 20 yard line and sped 
the rest of the way for a T.D. Rogers 
brought his educated toe into play 
and the Kckmen led 27-0. 

McManus Goes 60 Yards 

The fourth and final quarter found 
the UM doubling the score. Coach 
Tommy Bck cleared the bench in this 
stii nza yet the outmanned Cadets were 
unable to etem the t id*-. Feinman, 
I'yiif, Benoit and McManus all scored 
in this period with Rogeri adding 
three out of four conversions to place 
the total at 54-0. The highlight of 
this period was McManus' electrify- 
ing 00 yard runback of ■ punt for a 

It would be virtually impossible to 
single out any one man for special 
praise, Coach Eek and his staff pre- 
sented a highly competent and well 
drilled ■quad that simply rode the 
opposition into the ground. Barring 
injuries, the like of which hampered 
the club last season, the current edi- 
tion of the Redmen should provide 
stern opposition for any, and all, the 
teams listed on the schedule this year.

Looking Things Over 

By Joe Steede 

Now that even the most rabid of 
the Red Sox rooters has quietly shuf- 
fled off and left the queque for World 
Series tickets, it appears that King 
Football has finally asserted his right 
to pre-emminence on New Eng- 
land's sport pages. This is probably 
jus f as well, because that annual 
Fall germ carrier, redsoxitis, was well 
on his way to bringing about a severe 
cast of ulcers to thousands of Boston I

The recent revival of American 
Polk Music has made itself felt on the 
campus with the formation of the 
University Folk-Singers, a mixed oc- 
tet, under the direction of Professor 
Doric Alviani. 

Anyone with an interest la folk 
singing is cordially invited to attend 
the first rehearsal, to be held in Me- 
morial Hall on Thursday, October 6th, 
at seven o'clock. Those with musical 
ability on any of the folk music in- 
struments will be especially welcome. 
The group is at present in its for-

Last minute technical difficulties 
with the transmission line from the

the broadcasting of the game. How-

To clear up any confusion concern-

*'ns has issued the following sim- 
plified statements: 

1'reshmen are allowed NO unex- 
jtused absences from classes. Sopho- 
I mores are allowed one cut per se- 
K>ter hour of class. (A three-credit

tuu over these permitted will be re-

By Jawn 

Ya know? This school is getting 
mighty big. In another decade the 
place might be compared with BU, 
Columbia, Harvard, or some other 
nationally advertised brand of educa- 
tional factory. 

Things as a whole, however, are 
reasonably passable right now. That 
is, things as holes. But stop for a 
day or two and make a few reflections 
and speculations on the picture you 
might view if you have nothing else 
to do on a dreary day 20 years from 
now and decide to give the campus a 
visit. I already have. Here's the pic- 
ture I got: 

1968— Enrollment 32,001 
Enrollment: 32,001 students, 25,000 
of whom are freshmen and 2000 bona 
fide members of Scrolls and Maroon 
Key. The remaining 5000 students, 
when broken down into upper classes, 
turn out to be sophomores, juniors 
and seniors. The extra student came 
with the school when Morrill proposed 
the land grant act a century before. 

Name of School: Massachusetts Ag- 
ricultural College. Forced to eke out 
a living from the land because of a 
total absence of jobs available when 

they graduated, a small group of 
faithful alumni— some 20,000— banded 

together one night on the library 
steps to sign a petition to the Mass. 
legislature for a name change. (Ed. 
Note: Didn't help the steps any, 

They argued that the purpose of 
the school was to prepare persons for 
life-time occupations; this aim, they 
hung their heads and cracked their 
knuckles, the school had failed to 
fulfill. "Too many engineers" and 
"eleven teachers per pupil now" were 
cries of several disappointed profes- 
sors of UM sheepskins. 

So it was proposed that everything 
except agricultural and home-ec 
Courses be withdrawn; and further 
that the name of the school be 
changed from Massachusetts Institute 
for Boys and Girls of College Age 
back to its original name of Mass. 
Agricultural College (the name, Uni- 
versity of Mass.. had been dropped 
years before! )

Continued from page 1 

last year, I figured that in order to 
write a story about Devens men I 
would have to find a few of them. 
That was in lesson two (Or was it 
lesson three?). Well, I asked some- 
body where the transfers could be 
found, and_they said something about 
Pestalozzi's or Galiadurcci's or some- 
thing like that, and pointed in the di- 
rection of Pinehurst, which is the 
town right near the campus. 

Two Very Nice Men 

It must have been my lucky day 
because as I was walking along the 
road a very nice man in a green 
Studebaker stopped and asked me if 
I wanted a ride. I thought that was 
mighty neighborly of him so I got 
right in the front seat. Another gen- 
tleman in the back said that there 
was plenty of room back there but I 
said that I was all right where I was, 
thank you. The nice man who was 
driving said that he was a former 
Devens man when I told him what I 
was doing. The man in the back seat 
said, "Never had nothing like this 
back at the Fort, did we George?" 
and laughed kind of a funny laugh. 
We were passing by the Paternity 
houses just then, and I guess he 
must have meant that they didn't 
have Paternities at Devens College. 

Well, this George was just the 
cutest little old thing, he wanted to 
take me all the way out to some 
place called the Quondam Hut, but I 
told him no, I had to find a place 
called Pestalozzi's and interview some 
Devens men. He said, "Why don't you 
interview me, Baby?" (Why no- 
body's called me Baby since papa-dad- 
dy died years ago.) I asked him what 
he thought of the school and he said 
that he was an agricultural major 
with a minor in Grassing. I guess 
that's some special fodder-growing 
course that is very popular up here. 
Car Door Trouble 

I found the place I was looking 
for (I had just the most terrible time 
getting out of the car, there was no 
door handle on my side and George 
had to go all the way around and 
open the door from the outside) and 
then I discovered that the name of 
it was Barselotti's. It's some kind of 
a soda shop where many of the men 
students go to study and discuss 
their classes. I must have interrupted 
a conversation because when I walked 
in somebody said, "Boy, some class, 
eh!" I think he was talking about 
his French class or something be- 
cause then somebody said something 
in French. At least it sounded like 

The Cutest Little Things 

Well, the boys were just the cutest 
little old things. When they found 
out what I wanted, they all gathered 
around a little table and answered 
all my questions. They bought me* 

some of those cute little light brown 
Cherry Phosphates they were all 
drinking. I had about ten of them 
and then the room began to get kind 
of stuffy. 

I told them I would rather have a 
Dr. Pepper, like papa-daddy used to 
give me, and somebody went over to 
the soda fountain and asked this very 
nice lady who was there to give me 
one. I heard her say, "A Dr. Pepper! 
What do you think this is, Shum- 
way's?" So they brought me another 
cherry phosphate. 

Well, I got the impression that 
they all liked the campus, and they 
said they liked me, too, which was 
very nice of them. I was taking notes 
all the time, but people kept crowd- 
ing me so that I lost my notebook, so 
I'm writing this from memory. They 
told me about two other soda foun- 
tains near where they used to go to 
school; the Tinderbox, and the Blink- 
ing Hotel. They were all perfectly 
cute, especially when the policeman 
came in and they made believe they 
were throwing him out the door. 

I Get Gassed 

I'm sorry I don't remember about 
what went on, but the twenty cherry 
phosphates made me kind of gassy 
and I didn't feel very well. 

About 11 o'clock the housemother 
of my dorm came in and she was 
quite pleased to see that the boys had 
taken such a shine to me. I don't re- 
member exactly what she said, but 

know there was a lot of talking 

Chi Omega Girls 
Redecorate House 

A week and a half before the 
scheduled opening of school, the girls 
of Chi Omega sorority returned to 
campus to begin repairs on their 
fire -damaged house. To come back to 
a charred building, completely de- 
void of all furnishings would be dis- 
couraging to most girls, but the Chi 
O's were prepared to tackle the re- 
decorating of their home with ener- 
gy and spirit. 

The main building improvements 
are on the third floor, where the fire 
started. The woodwork has been 
painted white instead of its original 
natural wood finish. The window in 
this room has been enlarged, giving 
added light to the now cheerful bou- 
doir. Another newly built section is 
the attic, where two rooms have been 
converted into studies, the ceilings 
have been finished, and the wood- 
work has been painted silver. 

All of the rooms have been re- 
painted to suit the tastes of their 
occupants. On the second floor, where 
the larger rooms are, the hallways 
have been painted pale aqua, and 
new light fixtures have been in- 
stalled. The senior room is pink with 
gray turniture and bright draperies 
with rosebud designs. In the junior 
room yellow walls and green furni- 
ture are matched with colorful Bates 
spreads and drapes. The most strik- 
ing room on that floor is the sopho- 
mores' with its soft blue walls and 
contrasting vivid red curtains and 
white beds, desks, and dressers. 

The small rooms on the third floor 
have all been painted pastel shades. 

The girls wish to thank the many 
fraternities for lending a helping 
hand in moving the furniture in 
from the garage and aiding in other 
capacities. After the next home game 
on October 15, Chi Omega will have 
a coffee hour, at which time every- 
one will be invited and welcome to 
see the rejuvenated house. 

all the boys so I could send them 
thank you noteB, I guess. I must ask 
her for the list sometime. 

Well, I didn't feel very good the 
next morning. I felt like I did when 
I caught yellow fever out at Colonel 
Jackson's plantation at Lake Pont- 
chartrain. It was the most peculiar 
feeling. I guess those Yankee cherry 
phosphates don't agree with little old 

That's all I can write right now, 
because the Dean of Women wants 
to see me right away. All I can say 
is, "Hats off to the Devens men, and 
may they find themselves right at 
home here on the campus."

Make Friday Deadline 

I finally reached a tiny room filled 
with ropes, buckets of nails, plaster, 
paint, planks, harried young men, and 
general confusion. Wayne Langill, 
the Station Director, provided an ex- 
planation. There was a deadline to 
be met. The boys had committed 
themselves to a test broadcast Friday 
night as well as the broadcast of the 
Norwich game next day, and things 
were far from ready. The broadcast- 
ing booth at the field was not com- 
pleted, the public address system had 
not been set up, and here it was 
Thursday night. 

Well, we know that the deadline 

But there was a financial fly-in-the- 
ointment. The station's budget stood 
at eight hundred dollars — about 
enough for the equipment alone. 

You can guess the rest. Everyon. 
rolled up his sleeves and dug in. Dur- 
ing the summer, a master console was 
built, a control panel was built, a 
public address system was installed. 
Every bit of technical work was donr 
by the men themselves. The contr/ 
room was wired by Jack Hayes, Car! 
Cutler and Al Belgard. The radio 
booth and public address system down 
at Alumni Field were set up by Bob 
Cox, Dave Meltzer. George Doyle, and 
Irv Wasserman. Harold Shriber and 
Bob Small created the transmitter. 
Cox and Ed Fiorello built the turn-

went on the air Saturday, and it was 
a well executed broadcast. 

Making deadlines is child's play for 
the gang up in WMUA. They have 
overcome obstacles that might con- 
found the most obstinate, and have 
remodeled their station so that it 
ranks with any in this part of the

renovating job began with the closing

microgroove recordings. 

To an ordinary person the may « 
of technical radio is pretty much of 
an enigma. The world of wires is 
something we take too much for 
granted. When I left the WMUA 
studio, I brought no technical knowl- 
edge with me — but I did bring h 
a new respect and admiration for the 
guys who make the phenomenon of 
broadcasting a fact.

Senate Approves 
S. L. C. Revisions 

Changes in election rules and stu- 
dent body representation in the Stu- 
dent Life Committee composed the 
highlights of the Student Senate 
meeting held Tuesday night at 7:00 

Chairman Walter Foster of the 
[Election committee stated that Senate 
representatives from each dormitory 
will preside over the ballot boxes at 
the time of the class elections. These 
same representatives will also help to 
count the votes, and will be able to 
name their own hours that the polls 
will be open for balloting. The hours 
that they do decide upon, however, 
must be published far enough in ad- 
vance to allow all undergraduates to 
learn of them. 

Or. Vernon P. Helming then gave 
an explanatory talk on the organiza- 
tion and functions of the Student Life 
Committee. He stressed the need of 
representative balance between the 
Independents and the Greek students. 

Student groups which were reprc 
■anted in the Student Life Committee 
last year were the Women's Dorms, 

tli.- Men's Dorms, the Senate Com- 
mittee on Women's Affairs, the Senate 
Committee on Men's Affairs, The Can- 
hellcnie Council, The Interfraternit v 
Council, The Stockbridge School, and 
the Married Students. 

After a lengthy discussion, it was 
decided that the representatives from 
the Women's and Men's Dorms should 
he Independents, and that the com- 
muters should be placed with the 
Married Students' group. By taking 
this action, the Senate believes that 
the student body as a whole, will be 
better represented.

Brother Arrested 
For Lesure Murder 

Robert Lesure, 21, confessed last 
Sunday to the month old mystery 
shooting of his brother Walter, for 
mer student at U of M. 

After a two and half hour lie- de- 
tector test and additional questioning 
by police, Robert changed his original 
story about finding his brother's body 
and admitted shooting him because of 
"unhappiness." He later led police tn 
the pond where he threw the murder 
weapon and another gun which he had 
intended to use on himself. 

Police had been dissatisfied with 
the circumstances of the case ever 
since Walter's body had been found 
in his room with a bullet wound in 
his left temple. There had been no 
cause for Walter to commit suicide, 
as far as anyone could discover. He 
was described as a happy boy who 
had made many friends while at the 
University last year. The fact that 
there was no weapon in the room al-

Dispute Over Frat Representation 
Tie for One of Greenough Places 

Elections for the new student senate took place last Monday, 
with all but five of the twenty-nine seats in the senate being de- 
finitely decided. A tie for the position as second representative 
from Greenough, and a dispute over the fraternity representation 
had not been settled when the Collegian went to press. 

The new senate will take the oath 
of office in ceremonies at ?:.'{(» tonight 
in Old Chapel Auditorium. 

Most of the sections reported fairly 
representative turnouts at the polls, 
but the commuters' vote was rather 
W. The freshman vote represented 
the highest percentage of ballots cast 
by any of the classes. 

Whether the new senate, which will 
be inducted tonight, will hold office 
for one semester or for the full year 
is a question to be decided at the 
finals of the class elections a week 
from Monday. Under the terms of the 
old constitution which is still in ef 
feci, tbe senate can preside for only 
one semester. The revised const it u 
tioii, adoption of which will 1m- a sp.

office for the full year.

A STORY: Once upon a time there was a campus. A nice 
campus. With trees. And grass. And pretty girls. And a HIGH- 
WAY You could cross the highway. If you got up early. In the 
morning. About three o'clock. On Sunday. Moral: Somebody will 
get killed, and then we'll have a big safe-driving campaign. 


We wish to call attention here to the talk given by Dr. Win- 
burn Thomas last Thursday evening. Dr. Thomas presented a 
rather unique proposal which we consider to have a great deal 
of value as a real means to combat rising Communist influence 

in the Far Baft. 

The suggestion simply stated is that the United States adopt 
a Russian tactic which is now proving itself to be that country's 
strongest weapon in the acquisition of new territories by the 
Communist Party. Since its inception, the Party has followed the 
policy of bringing to its schools nationals from the countries 
which were fust on its list in the proposed plan for world domi- 
nance by Communism. 

These students during their stay in Russian universities be- 
come thoroughly or partially indoctrinated with the ideas of Com- 
munism and having returned to their own countries, many if not 
most of them become emissaries for the Party. Taking their 
places as teachers and professional men their thinking inevitably 
finds its way into the thought of their country, and thus forms 
a groundwork more effective in the full Communization of a na- 
tion than is the use of force. 

In the past decade, the number of such students, supple- 
mented by nationals who go to Russia specifically to study Com- 
munism, has greatly increased. This is true in Europe as well as 
in the Far East. The recent Communist successes in China, the 
noticeable rise of Communist influence in Japan and the East 
Indies, and in every one of the Far Eastern states can be traced 
directly to this systematized control of thought. 

The Far East is an area where this policy is especially effec- 
tive, as Dr. Thomas pointed out. The peoples of these lands are 
in a state of revolution against oppression which has governed 
them for centuries. They are ready to accept any change, and 
that which has been offered them first is Communism. Dr. Thomas 
suggests that we offer them a chance to look at the merits of 
democracy by bringing Far Eastern students to our universities 
with funds which might otherwise be directed toward military 
aid and by a system of exchange between schools in this country 
and those of the Far East. This is a sensible suggestion and it 
represents the only effective solution we have yet seen to a prob- 
lem from which the United States will not be able to walk away.

The Time For Spirit ... 

Continued from Page 1 
to emphasize here the fact that tl ! Worcester game did nothing to dis- 
prove the idea that this year's Re.l nen team has the basic qualities of a 

It outrushed and outpassed the Tech squad and controlled the hall for 
a major part of the game. These factors ordinarily add up to victory, but 
the touchdowns which produce a victory still depend quite often on hair- 
breadth decisions which have little to do with the all-around ability of a team 
As an instance, we invite your attention to the picture spread at the top of 
page four in this issue. 

The results of the first three games show definitely that this is a cap- 
able team. It has faults certainly, faults which in the Worcester game nul- 
lified an otherwise strong attack. Several scoring drives were killed off be- 
cause the passer wasn't given enough protection, or by a fumble, or because 
a penalty was incurred which might have been avoided. These and other 
less apparent mistakes can be corrected. And we think they will be. 

When considering the remainder of the schedule we believe that the stu- 
dent body should find no cause for a slackening of enthusiasm. It is our 
opinion that the Redmen have at least an even money chance in every one 
of the ball games still to be played. No doubt they will be rated as under- 
dogs in some of them, hut after last week, we don't worry abdlit underdogs 
or favorites. 

The time for the greatest enthusiasm and confidence is now. The teanf 
will have to be up for the Rhode Island game. That rally tomorrow night 
is important; it might mean the difference between another victory or a 
loss. It should be even more spirited than the one which preceded the Nor- 
wich game; and that is up to you students.

Karrel Dress Latest Creation 

According to Stanley Marcus, of

was motivated by one magazine 
which printed this derogatory state

New AD Praises Eckmen Highly; Tells of Hopes, Plans 

By Buss Broude 

That new feeling of Spring in the air is so noticeable in the Rhys Kd building, that current of renewed 
faith, hope and expectation, of plans, enlargement, expansion. . those are the changes that have come along with 
the new Athletic Director Warren McGuirk. 

In the little office off to the right of the Cage, he sits and calmly surveys all that he has fallen into, or rather 
all that has fallen unto him. He never seems to rush, but he gets things done. Through his head, slightly tinged against Dartmouth, but were I

Mac is a man who knows what and how to say he wants, and most important, when and where to say it. He 
has unified the Athletic Department, giving it direction and purpose, seemingly by his presence alone. 

Subtle, almost sour, wry humor are a part of his makeup, and is most noticeable as he fingers his glasses 
while answering touchy questions. He seldom smiles, but when he does it is a firm smile, and his laugh is hearty 
and comfortable.

^Ojud l/iam the. 

By Barb Curran 

WML' A and WSCR of Smith Col- 
have made tentative plans for 

procal broadcasts. WSCR has in- 

i the staff of WMl'A to its studi(» 
-lith College in the near future 
cquaint the U of M staff with the 
broadcaating facilities of WSCR. 
Correapondence Is now being ear- 
on between the two radio stations 

issing the possibilities of "WML'A 
Mite" on WSCR, Dave hfeltser, Head 

Public Relations for the radio >ta 
revealed this week . . . 
A commendation was received by 
Staff of WMUA from Anthony 
\\. Zaitz, Instructor in Speech, in the 
Department of English. Last year. 
WMl'A arranged for the broadcast 
.if discussions by members pf Mr. 
Zaitz' speech class. 

In his letter, Mr. Zaitz thanked the 
itaff for its co-operation and for the 
rtunity afforded his class in 
Speech 91, last spring. Mr. Zaitz went 
to say that the willingness of the 
.-ration "to provide recording equip- 
, studio facilities, and broadcast- 
ing time as well as personal time . . . 

• it possible to provide the stu- 
tj with a valuable experience." . . . 

It has always been the aim of 
WMUA to broadcast what the listen- 
want most. A statistical survey 
rill be taken by the Agricultural 
Economies 79 class under Mr. Sargent 
sell to learn the type of program 
desired by the student body. 
The shows over WMUA will then 

• t up on a percentage basis cor- 
-P""ding exactly to the results of 

the poll . . . 

George Doyle, Production Manager 
Of WML'A. indicated that this year 
will reveal a wider use of campus 
talent for WMUA broadcasts. Among 
those shows already planned, there 
will be weekly programs featuring 
campus musical "combos". 

Anyone interested in being on a 
broadcast or who has ideas concern- 
ing shows should get in touch with 
George Doyle at the radio station in 
South College or the WMl'A office in 
Mom Hall . . . 

Appreciation is extended by WMl'A 
to Robert McCartney of the Univer- 
sity News Service and Warren P. Mc- 
Guirk, head of the Athletic Depart- 
ment, for their efforts in enlisting aid 
from every source in order to affect 
the construction of the radio booth 
facilities at the Athletic Field . . . 
The laying of direct telephone lines 
between Amherst College and U of M 
radio stations will be realized in the 
near future. 

It was the desire of these stations 
to have these lines strung last year. 
However, the telephone company was 
not in the position to start work at 
that time . . . 

Understudies for the officers of 
radio station WMUA will undergo a 
training program in order that they 
may direct their respective depart- 
ments efficiently next year. 

Inasmuch as most of the key posi- 
tions are held by men in the class of 
1950, it is necessary that their suc- 
cessors be well versed in the duties of 
their office this year, Wayne Lnngill, 
station manager, reported this week.

The purpose of the promotion on

is to popularize American folk mus- 
ic. The songs grew out of the court 
ballads of the middle ages, and since 
that time, have been altered m their 

Some of these ancient ballards have 
been retained and are sung today. 
Folk songs, never written, but rath- 
er passed down from mouth to ear, 
usually tell of a person's weupation, 
examples of which are lumber camp 
and canal songs, cowboy melodies, 
and sea chants.

Maclver Exhibit 
Shown in Mem Hall 

Ian Maclver of the University's 
School of Fine Arts is currently pre- 
senting an exhibition of 26 of his own 
paintings and drawings in the recre- 
ation room of Memorial Hall. Mr. 
Maclver, a native of Scotland, studied 
at Columbia University and has been 
an instructor here for several years. 
His works have been displayed as 
one-man exhibitions in the leading 
art museums throughout the United 
States and Canada, as well as in 
several colleges and universities 

To put it in his own words, Mr. 
Maclver's work can best be described 
as "simplified selected realism in a 
non-abstract pattern." 

Mr. Maclver stands well over six 
feet tall, and his vigorous bearing 
and ruddy countenance reflect a love 
for the great outdoors which is ap- 
parent in his paintings. 

The exhibit features land and sea 
scapes executed in bold water colors, 
M well as striking pen and pencil 

Maclver's interpretations of the 
sea were inspired during his summers 
at Martha's Vineyard, and many pre- 
liminary drawings of New York City 
originated on the fish piers and boat 
docks of the lower East Side while 
the artist was still a student. 

He has painted professionally since 
1933, with time out during the war 
for service in army and navy topo- 
graphic outfits. 

Interfrat Council 
To Become Sponsor 
For CM Glee Club 

The University Chowder and 
Marching Society, a combination male 
glee club and social organization 
which recently made its appearance 
on campus, chose its romantic and 
deceptive name from the popular 
comic strip liar na by. 

The club was chartered by the Stu- 
dent Senate last May, and has re- 
cently come under the sponsorship of 
the Intrafraternity Council. Mr. Tony 
Zaitz of the Speech Department is 
the group's adviser. 

The Society is interested in getting 
as new members University men who 
enjoy singing and good fellowship. 
Meetings are held on Tuesday eve- 
nings at 7 p.m. in Stockbridge Hall, 
room 114. 

Trustees Approve Arts 
And Science Merger 

The unification of the Schools of 
Arts and Sciences as the College of 
Arts and Sciences was approved by 
the Trustees at their meeting of 
January It and is now awaiting the 
final approval of the State, accord- 
ing to Dean Machmer. 

Under the plan outlined by Dean 
Machmer students will take their 
first two years in the College of Arts 
and Science before branching off to 
their respective technical schools. 

Modification of this plan will be 
made for the various professional 
schools as the School of Engineering 
because of the professional stand- 
ards which must be met by them. 

The courses will be adjusted to co- 
incide with the major field selected 
by the student but the tendency fol- 
lowed by the other higher institu- 
tions to place a geater emphasis on 
a more liberal and well-rounded edu- 
cation will be stressed. 

Closer coordination between the 
various departments will be affected 
by this unification and will expediate 
the introduction of any new courses 
as they are needed in the basic cour- 

The consolidation of the two 
schools is to be an Administrative 
airangement and a Dean of the Col- 
lege will not be appointed until 
funds for the office are approved by 
the State. For the present, Prof. 
Rand, acting dean of the School of 
Liberal Arts, and Dean Alexander 
are coordinating in supervising the 
plans of the newly-formed college.

Seven years ago Mf . Flensted Jen-

made a tour of America with twenty 
six boys from Denmark. The group 
appeared in cities and communities 
from the east to the west coast. The 
fine reception accorded them prompt- 
ed the suggestion of a larger tour 
this time including girls. 

X-Rays Next Week 

The Dean's office announced this 
week that all freshmen are RE- 
QUIRED to have chest x-rays next 
week. Four year seniors are strongly 
urged to report also, since this is the 
last time that they will have the 
chance to avail themselves of this 
service. In addition, time has been 
set aside for those sophomores and 
juniors who wish to come to the 
Physical Education Building during 
the specified hours.

Dairy Team to Judge 
At Los Angeles Meet 

The University dairy products judg- 
ing team will compete in the annual 
Collegiate Students International Con- 
test in Judging Dairy Products, which! 
will be held in Los Angeles on Octo- 
ber 23, it was announced this week. 

Until recently, travel expenses con- i 
stituted a problem to the team, 
coached by Dr. D. H. Nelson, but of-^ 
ficial sanction was given by the office 
of the treasurer, and plane reserva- 
tions were made by Dr. Hankinson, 
head of the Department of Dairy In- 

I'roducts to be judged are confined 
to milk, vanilla ice cream, butter and 
cheddar or American cheese. 

In preparation, the team holds daily 
practices to determine the character- 
istic tastes of pood and bad manu- 
factures. Some of the criteria are: for 
butter; flavor, body, salt, and package 
appearance; for milk; flavor, sedi- 
ment, container and closure; for ice 
cream; flavor, body texture, melting 
quality, color and package; and for 
cheese; flavor, body and texture, fin- 
ish, and Color. In making flavor judg- 
ments, the product is not swallowed. 

One advantage the boys have is 
that the contest in Los Angeles will 
be essentially the same as the Eastern 
Stales Dairy Products Judging Con- 
test, in which they recently competed 
and placed third in a field of nine

An enthusiastic crowd of 4500 stu- 
dents and guests heard Rise Stevens, 
Metropolitan Opera star, in a ren- 
tal held at the Physical Education 
Cage on Tuesday eight. The con- 
cert was the first of the season to be 
held by the University Concert As- 

Miss Stevens, wearing a pink satin 
evening g»wn and a green marqui- 
sette stole, opened the evening's per- 
formance with Handel's 'Where'ei 
You Walk," from "Semele" and "II 
est doux, il est Don," from Massen- 
et's opera "Herodiade." 

Then followed three Negro spirit- 
uals "Oh, What a Beautiful City," 
"Were You There?" and "My Good 
Lord Done Been Here," the latter 
from an arrangement by Hall John- 

In the third part of the program, 
Miss Stevens sang five numbers in 
German, including Schumann's "Wid- 
mung," and the beautiful "Traum 
durch die Dammerung" by Strauss. 

By Joe Towler 

I he last song in this group was a 
sprightly novelty number about a 
little girl warning a mouse to beware 
of her cat, "Mausfallen-Spi uchlcm." 

Called back for an encore after the 
first half of the concert, Miss Stev- 
ens sang the popular '•.Mon coeur 
sou v re a ta voix," from Saint-Saen's 
opera "Samson and Delilah." 

Following the intermission, Mr. 

Br>oks Smith, Miss Stevens' sceom- 
| -taist, played three piano solos: 
"Sonata in A Major," by Scarlatti, 

Debussy's "Evening in Granada," 
and "Capriccio in F Minor," by 
Dohnanyi. Mr. Smith received such 

an ovation for his excellent perform- 
ance that he returned for an encore, 
the "Prelude in G Major" by Rach- 

To open her pari Of the second 
half of the recital, Miss Stevens per- 
formed a series of songs in English. 
The first was the lyrical "To the 
Children," by Rachmaninoff followed 
by "April" by Frank St. Leger of 

the Metropolitan. The next was an 

arrangement of ■ Welsh folk-song

some excerpts from one of her most 
famous operatic roles, "Carmen," b\ 
Bizet. She brought her vibrant yoke 
and excellent stage presence to the 
rollicking "Habanera," the coquet 
t'.sh "Seguidilla," and the lilting 
"Gypsy Song." 

At the end Of the performance, 
the audience showed its great sppre

calling her back for three encore.-,. 
The first was a novelty number of

Chief William Engelmann of the

days from nine to six," said the 
Chief "on Fridays however the hours 
are from nine to nine."

Married students of Federal Circle, 
apartment buildings, and trailer 
camps did not vote. 

The dispute over the fraternity 
representation arose when it was dis- 
covered that one of the defeated 
candidates, Dana Davis of Kappa Sig- 
ma, is not actually an occupant of 
the frat house, and therefore, in ac- 
cordance with the rules of the con- 
stitution, is ineligible to represent it. 

Inasmuch as Davis had received 
votes in the election, the balloting was 
declared no contest. A new election 
will be held in the frats as well as at 
Greenough. The frats are represented 
by four members in the senate. Mem- 
bers who, along with Davis, were 
elected in the invalidated election are i 
Martin Flynn, William Less, and 
Bruce Wogan. The latter three, and 
two other nominees, John Fox and Al 
Taylor will be the candidates in the 
new election.

During the past few weeks we have listened to a considerable 
amount of criticism concerning the services offered by the col- 
lege Infirmary. Some of these critical comments deal with prob- 
lems which seem to have a basis of fact; others of them present 
arguments which are based on fact which is misapprehended. 

WC'ic not prepared at this writing to discuss the validity 
or lack of validity of these claims voiced against the infirmary. 
Before we attempt such a discussion we want to see more evi- 
dence The means of obtaining this evidence is what We speak of 


It is established there is at least some question as to whether 
<>r not the infirmary is doing a proper and thorough job in pro- 
viding diagnosis and treatment of student ailments. What we 
want to know first is — How widespread is this question? Is it 
confined t<> the small number of students we have heard or does 
a substantial part of the student body have similar complaints? 
The Collej»ian can obtain a partial answer by asking individual 
students, but it cannot, by this method, obtain nearly the amount 
of information needed to Rive this question the ailing it needs 

We want to get the discussions about the infirmary out of 
the coffee shop and the dormitories and onto the front pages 
where everybody can see them, where the entire campus has a 
chance to evaluate what is being thought and said. If this matter 
can be brought out in the open it is possible that pertinent, defi- 
nite facts can be obtained to determine whether or not the infir- 
mary service is efficient to the extreme required in such a vital 

Letters Needed 

We ale speaking hero to individual students: If you have a 

complaint about the infirmary we want to see it in the form of a 
letter If you have favorable comment we want to see it in a let- 
ter. If you have anything at all to say about the infirmary, we 
want you to write us about it. Obviously, we cannot print all the 
letter:; we ask for, but we can print some of them, and everyone 
of them can be used as a source for information. That informa- 
tion is needed.

Dear Editor: 

In last week's issue I noticed that 
when questioned about the crowded 
conditions at the Book Store, Mr. 
Hawley replied that there is "no 
other way to handle it." This an- 
swer seems to DM to be indicative 
of the attitude of several members 
of the administration when faced 
with the problem of coping with in- 
creased enrollments and modern ed- 
ucational conditions. 

I would venture to say that there 
II nothing in the administration of 
this university, or any other aspect 
<>f life in general, that could not be 
done in another and perhaps im- 
proved manner. Anyone who does not 
believe so must be extremely pro- 
vincial and unimaginative. 

Plain criticism, however, will not 
help the students who must waste 
valuable time waiting in line or who 
may even get off to a weak start 
in an important course because of 
inability to procure a needed text- 
book. Therefore I will give what I 
consider to be one solution of the 


Cage As Bookstore 

I suggest nothing less than the 
BBC of the cage as a self-service book 
store on the two days following reg- 
istration. At that time there are 
plenty of desks and tables available 
which could be arranged to form 
counters, each to be piled with the 
books required for courses in cer- 
tain departments, signs designating 
departments having been left from 

students could enter at one door- 
way, pick out their own books ac- 
cording to their book cards, present 
the books and cards to a cashier by 
, the other doorway, pay the necessary 
amount and leave. 

Expense Offset 

There could be several cashiers at 
various doorways, some of them 
handling cash sales, others taking 
Care of veterans' sales. Of course, 
extra help would be needed to supply 
the books, keep the counters filled 
and watch the exits, but I believe 
this expense would be more than off- 
set by a shorter total time required 
to supply all students with books 
and a correspondingly greater satis- 
faction on the part of the students. 

Books for highly specialized junior 
and senior courses could be sold at 
the regular book store at the same 
time, and perhaps all engineering could be sold through that 
department. Other details, such as 
; delivery direct to the cage of certain 
shipments, might also be arranged, 
but please don't anybody say that 
nothing can be done about it. This 
problem will increase rapidly as the 
enrollment increases and some solu- 
tion must be found.

Collegian Profile No. 26 

by Judy Krodei 

Coach Eck - Former All Eastern Center 

Professor Thomas W. Eck of the 
Department of Physical Education, 
head coach of the football team, and 
advisor of the Varsity "M" Club, is 
better known to all students as Tom- 

He was born on March 29, 1914. in 
Allentown, Pa., where he attended 
Allentown High School and Allen-' 
town Preparatory School. After a so- 
journ at another prep school, he then 
went to Colgate University, receiving 


his A. B, degree in 1988. That year 

he attended the summer session of 

Springfield College, and in 1944 he 
received the degree of M.S. From this 
school, which was then Massachu- 
setts State College. 
Held Various Coaching Positions 
His first job after graduation from 
Colgate was at Northampton High 
School, where he was not only the 
director of physical education and 
coach of football and track, but also 
a teacher of biology, his college ma- 
jor. After four years as a high 
school teacher, he came to Massachu- 
setts State College in the fall of 
L942 as a line coach. 

During the 194") season he was 
acting head coach for the first foot- 
ball team after a two year lapse due 
to the war. That year, the last time 
we played Amherst College, tying 

them (>-o, he used both Stock bridal 
and four-year students on th. tea 
which had a record of 2-1-1. Durij 
the war, he also coached varsity 
ketball and baseball as well as junio 1 
varsity basketball. 

When former coach Walt Barge* 
heimer returned from the service 
194t>, Mr. Eck once more beca 
coach, only to ascend again 
position of head coach the follow* 
year. Besides his activities on t« 
field, he teaches classroom courses j 
secondary school physical educate 
and football, baseball, and basketball 
coaching theory. 

Enjoys Traveling and Gardening 

His traveling has been connss 
mostly to scouting for future athlete 
and to attending conferences of th 
American Football Coaches \ I 
tion and the National Collegia!. AthJ 
letic Association. 

His hobbies are numerous . J 
versified. During the war he becan 
interested in gardening, to which 
devotes a great deal of time. He a'j 
spends some of his spare n 1 
studying the techniques of t 

pictures and playing golf. While J 
Colgate he was president of I 

nior class and of his f'ra j 

Lambda Chi Alpha, as well u 
member of the Inter-fraternit\ C 
eil. the dramatics club, and 
man baseball and basketball I 
All-Eastern Center 

He was a member .>(' the f I 
■quad and was chosen all-Easta 
center. He was also a men 
the Eastern College all-star 
which played the New York G 
in 19.'18. He ll very proud of the V ■ 
sity "M" club, a coming organil 
tion, which has already awarded ' 
tuition scholarships although it s 
been functioning for only two 

He if happily married 
father of two boys and two £ [ 

says with regret, "During the | 
ball season, I see my wife for aii 
a half hour each day since it, 

home around Bine o'clock in 
morning and return any time 
midnight on. I have to wait until 
football season is over to 
quainted with my family." 



Dear Sir: 

It is indeed nice to know that Mr. 
Donald P. Hawley has worked out 
such an original solution to the prob- 
lem of avoiding crowded conditions 
at the bookstore during the early 
semester rush. 

However, to those students who 
find it rather difficult to hand in 
homework two days after classes 
start without any books in which to 
study, his suggestion that we wait 
until the queues disapear sounds a 
little as though he wished we would 
all flunk out. That in itself might 
solve the problem, but is such a dras- 
tic procedure necessary? 

One wonders what insurmountable 
obstacle prevents the bookstore from 
being open from 8 A. M. to 8 P.M. 
on weekdays as well as from 8 A. M. 
to 12 noon on Saturdays at least 
during the first two weeks of the 
semester . 

Please, Mr. Hawley, won*t vou

profs) has proven that the

you about the rough boards on the RAlcf

thin material. However, we also have 
vivid pictures of bulging slacks and 
sloppy shirts where, instead, there 
ought to be a covering of material 
to accent the feminine figure with- 
out producing such weird effects. Our 
suggestion is again the skirt or a 
heavy dress to withstand the strain 
and cold. There were a few votes

Indications are that the University

announcers and technicians to the 
game Saturday in order to broadcast 
the event back home through the 
courtesy of WMUA. However, this 
broadcast will have nothing to do 
with WMUA broadcasting for the C

Columbia Records 
UM Square Dances 
As Students Watch 

The Columbia recording studio in 
New York City recently played host 
to a group of students from the Uni- 
versity of Massachusetts, who saw 
an album of square dance records 
being made. 

The album was compiled hy Mr 
Lawrence l.oy of the University, and 
it will be released sometime in No- 
vember throughout the nation. A Co- 
lumbia photographer took pictures of 

the students as they executed some 
of the steps, and these pictures will 
appear on the cover and inside of the 
album. This should help to put the 
I of M on the map. 

This album is the second one that 
Mr. l.o\ h;, s dune for Columbia. His 
first Columbia album was made years 
ago, the first n ( ,ts kind, and it was

popularity of folk dancing.

New Senate Chooses Officers; Elections Finally Completed 


Howard is Elected 
Senate President 

The last meeting of the 194S-49 
Student Senate took place at Skin- 
ner Hall last Thursday evening, and 
was followed by the installation ol 
the newly-elected Senate. 

During the brief meeting that took 
place former Election Chairman 
Walter Foster announced the names 
Of those representatives of the new 

Confusion was in evidence when 
it was found that one of the men 
running for fraternity representa- 
tive, does not, although he is a mem- 
ber of a fraternity, reside in the 


The re-elections held Monday night 
resulted in the official fraternity rep- 
resentatives being Martin Flynn of 
Lambda Chi, William Less of TEP, 
and Jack Benoit of Kappa Sigma. 

The Greenough tie for its second 
representative was decided in favor 
of Ned Campbell, it was announced 
by the new Election Chairman Phil 


Walter Foster reported at last 
Thursday's meeting that married 
students will choose their representa- 
tive October 25. 

Foster also stated that the nomi- 
nations for class officers were re- 
ceived Tuesday and that two of the 
candidates had to be stricken from 
the ballot because of duplicate signa- 
tures on more than one nomination. 
These two students were Russ Beau- 
mont and Bill Looney, both of Kap- 
pa Sigma. There will be a few blank 
spaces on the ballot, however, pro- 
vided for those who wish to write 
in the names of anyone not listed. 

Foster then proposed a new a- 
mendment to the constitution stating 
that not less than Ml and not more 
than 10 r r of the class must sign a 
petition for class office. He also rec- 
ommended that the elections be held 
six weeks within the fall semester 
instead of the customary five. 

Chief Justice John McAuliffe then 
swore in the new senate and extended 
his congratulations. After a very 
short introductory session, the newly- 
elected senate adjourned. 

NEW SENATORS — Shown above are the new Senators sworn in last Thursday niuht by Chief Justice McAul- 
liffe. I. to r. Front row: B. Porter, Thelma Litsky, Carol Hinds, Beryl Stern, Dorothy Fortin, Hope Westcott, 
Ardeth Miller, Louise Moncey, Regina Lawler, V. Johnson. Back row: J. Belville, F. Davis, D. Weidhaas, D.

New Constitution 
Revisions Proposed 

At their final meeting last Thurs- 
day, the out-going Senate approved 
three additional revisions for the al- 
ready once-revised constitution. This 
document is to be voted on next Mon- 
day, October 24, and a majority of 
:,()'; of the eligible voters are need- 
ed to ratify it. 

In Article II of the new document, 
Section 20 was changed to provide 
for the setting up of a committee for 
the National Students' Association. 
This section states that at least two 
members of the committee shall be 
members of the senate, and brings 
the activities of NSA under the stu- 
dent government. 

Section 6 of Article III makes new 
provisions for aspirants to class offi- 
ces. Candidates for class office must 
secure a petition with signatures of 
at least five per cent but not more 
than ten per cent of the class. 

It has been considered that the 
past qualifications have furnished a 
system of procuring petitions that 
was inadequate. Five per cent of the 
class comprises a more representa- 
tive number. The ten per cent limit 
is designed to make the work of the 
election committee easier and to 
eliminate the possibility of one can- 
didate cornerning the market of sig- 

This section further provides that 
no person may sign two petitions of 
candidates running for the same of- 

Section 7 of the same Article again 
changes the time for elections. In- 
stead of within five weeks of the be- 
ginning of the fall semester, class 
officer elections shall take place in 
the future not later than the sixth 

farm-like institution, I have been 
constantly amazed at the ways of 
these members of the proletariat. 
They're so common! 

Antics at Amherst 

Why, would you believe it, I was 
sipping tea yesterday afternoon with 
a mutual acquaintance at a local 
tavern — they call it the Lord Jeff — 
when suddenly a loud shout of 
whooping and noises of carousing 
rent the air. I didn't know what on 
earth to do. The rumpus seemed to 
be at the other end of town — down 
at the Aggie school. 

My friend and I hopped into my 
8-cylinder job (gracious, there I go 
again; using that horrid university 
dialect) and sped off in that direc- 
tion. It seemed that a band of hid- 
eous Indians were scalping an inno- 
cent flock of sheep on some athletic 
field, for there were continual shouts 
urging that the Redmen sealp'em. 
The natives must have emerged vic- 
torious for, minutes later, someone 
shouted hilariously, "Redmen 32, 
Rams 19." Oh, well! 

the Collegian, which set forth the 
articles of apparel that well-dressed 
college girls are fashioning at the 

The authoress wove her piece of 
nonsense about three fashions in par- 
ticular that the co-eds at the uni- 
versity are sporting. She expounded 
at length upon them in this order: 
the barrel dress, the raccoon coat, 
and the "bald look." 

I understand from her article that 
these are the latest fads around 
campuses throughout the nation. But, 
Winthrop, either this university is 
located in Hindustan or the girls up 
here don't bother to keep up with 
the times; for nearly every female 
at this school goes around campus 
in dungarees, slacks, sweaters-and- 
skirts, or their boy-friend's cordu- 
roy jacket. 

On A Rampage Over Fads 

At any rate, here's what she has 
to say about the new fashions: "Ac-

Rod and Gun Club To Open this Year; 
Announces Prizes \ 350 Men will Move 

cording to Stanley Marcus, of Nei- 
man-Marcus Company of Dallas" 
(does that name mean anything to 
you?) "the latest creation is the 
'barrel dress' designed for spite as 
well as practicability." Then she goes 
on to say that some magazine jok- 
ingly intimated that women would 
come up with new fashions even 
though there was an absence of 
cloth for the clothes; and then, she 
describes it. Think of it, Winthrop! 
Young ladies parading in clothes re- 
sembling barrels — I suppose she 
meant beer barrels, at that. The girls 
at Radcliffe never would wear any- 
thing as odd-looking as that would 

The raccoon coat, she alleges, is 
"staging a dramatic comeback in col- 
legiate fads," with the hem stopping 
"just below the three-quarter mark." 
The only drama I can picture in this 
comeback is the raccoon suddenly 
rearing on its hind legs and snap- 
ping back at the young lady every 
time she opens her mouth to speak.

hair-grooming in which the coiffure j Intirinary .. .

Group Sworn In 
By Judiciary Chief 

The election of officers highlighted 
the affairs of the Student Senate 
during their meeting held <>n Tu< 
day evening at 7:(M). 

Alden Howard, class of 1950, wa> 
chosen president for the following 
term. Harold Markarian was ele< 
vice-president; Thelma Litsky, tr. 
urer; and Dot Fortin, secretary. Thii 
group was sworn in and congratu- 
lated by John MacAuliffe, Chief Jus 

Phil Gillmore, election chairman. 
stated that the fraternity representa- 
tives were Martin Flynn and William 
Less, both of Lambda Chi Alpha, and 
John Benoit of Kappa Sigma. He als 
said that Ned Campbell was chosen 
as the Greenough senator. 
Parking Discussed 

President Howard stated that 
| something had to be done about tin 
parking difficulties on campus, and 
told the senators to find out how 
many cars were owned in each resi- 

Each senator was also instructed to 
stress the importance of the voting 
which will concern the adoption of 
the revised constitution. It was said 
that much work went into this revi- 
sion, and that it was printed in the 
Handbook so that each student would 
be able to become acquainted with it. 

To Conduct Election 

One senator from each University 
residence group will conduct the class 
election in his residence on Monday, 
it was announced. Times and voting 
places for the election will be posted 
in the various dormitories and cam- 
pus dwellings by the members of th» 
election committee. Students were 
urged to note these facts, so that as 
large a vote as possible may be ob- 
tained on Monday. 

Fifty per cent of the student body 
must vote, with a majority in favor, 
in order for the proposed new con- 
stitution to be passed. If the constitu- 
tion is adopted, the Senators elected 
this fall will remain in office for a 
full year instead of the semester for 
which they now serve. 

It was announced at the first meet- 
ing of the Rod and Gun Club that a 
$5.00 prize would be given to the 
club member who turned in the larg- 
est number of Ruffed Grouse wings 
and tails to Chet Banaziak at the 
Wild life lab. Only grouse shot by 
the member himself will be counted 
in the contest. However, everyone is 
urged tp turn in all partridge wings 
and tails from any bird collected

A new Stevens automatic shot gun 
goes to the lucky winner of this state 
wide contest. For further informa- 
tion on this contest get in touch with 
Chet Banaziak or Dr. Trippensee of 
the Wild Life Department here or 

It was decided by the members 
present that the Rod and Gun Club 
would meet regularly at 7:00 p.m. on 
the first and third Thursday of the 
month. Election of officers was post- 
poned until a later date. 

Calendar Notice 

In the future, all notices for 
the weekly calendar must be 
brought to the office of the presi- 
dent's secretary, where the calen- 
dar is compiled. Notices should be 
brought to that office no later 
than Monday morning. 

The Collegian will not accept 
notices which are to be added to 
the calendar. 

The new Hamlin House will be 
open for occupancy the week of No- 
vember 1, 1949, reported Mr. T. B. 
Thomas, Housing Officer. 

175 students now housed in Green- 
ough and Mills will move into this 
building thus relieving the over- 
crowding in these two buildings and 
returning them to a normal occupan- 
cy basis. 

It is planned to have this dormi- 
tory completely finished before occu- 
pancy. There are 74 double rooms 
and 8 single rooms plus a large rec- 
reation room in the basement and a 
lounge on the first floor. 

Knowlton House — south of Ham- 
lin is scheduled to be ready for oc- 
cupancy on or about December 1, 
15)49. The use of this building will 
relieve the overcrowding in Chad- 
bourne Hall and Butterfield House. 
Upperclassmen now housed in Chad- 
bourne will move into Knowlton 
House, thus permitting freshmen to 
occupy all of Chadbourne and the oc- 
cupancy of Butterfield House back to 
a normal basis. 

With the opening of Knowlton 
House enough rooms will be available 
on campus to eliminate the necessity 
of any student living under crowded 
conditions. It is expected that all 
single rooms will be occupied by one 
student and double rooms by two stu- 
dents only. 

Although some students may still 
prefer to remain to live 3 or 4 to a 
room this will not be permitted since 
this was necessary as an emergency 
measure only

400 Attend Isogon 
Scholarship Dance 

Over 200 couples crowded Drill 
Hall last Friday night to dance to 
the music of Frank Sotille's orches- 
tra at the first Isogon dance of the 
season, dance chairman Rcnie An- 
derson said this week. 

Proceeds from the dance are large 
enough to enable Isogon to award 
the Junior Woman's Scholarship this 
spring. In the past, the Senate has 
provided the money for a $50 schol- 
arship which is presented annually 
to the outstanding woman in the 
Junior class. This is the first year 
that Isogon will award the scholar-

To the second question, the doctoi 
answered that he knew of no case in 
which a person "with a temperature 
is shoved out in the cold." The third, 
which asked, "Why is it taken for 
granted that everyone who sprains 
his ankle is trying to get out of an 
exam?" Doctor Radcliffe termed "ri- 
aiculous," and pointed to such cases 
which are brought to the Infirmary 
outside of school hours. 

To the next question, concerning 
rough handling of sore and swollen 
limbs, he replied that he had never 
seen such an instance and that he 
did not believe it has happened. 

Of the fifth criticism, an allega- 
tion that cough syrup had been giver 
for a backache, Dr. Radcliffe stated 
that he could not credit the claim 
and that if such treatment has bo» 
given it "has not happened intention- 

To the last question, asking why 
"nose drops for an ear ache?" the 
doctor stated that in certain cases, 
involving a blocking of the ear, the 
use of drops is the more safe and 
effective method of treatment.

"First Lady," presented by the 
Roister Doiaters in 1947, reaped 
$450 for the War Memorial Drive. 

Carnival Ball Committee of the 
same year found that, after all ex- 
penses had been met, there was $200 
to the good. This was given to the 
campaign in progress. 

A total of IMJt was received 
by Howie Steff, Vice Chairman of 
the drive, from the Campus Varieties 
shows of '48 and '49. The 1948 pro- 
duction netted $208.25 for the War 
Memorial fund. Last year's show 
more than doubled that figure with 
$500 being given. 

Wishing Well An Attraction 

One of the greatest money-raisers 
la the Wishing Well, which has been 
set up for the past two years at the 
annual Hort Show. Sponsored by the 
Floriculture Club, the well collected 
$292.27 in 1947 and $257.50 last fall. 

The Wishing Well will again be 
a feature of the Hoil Show this 
year. It is hoped that donations by 
the thousands of visitors attending 
this fall will outdo those of previous 

Contributions that will help build 
the new social center have been com- 
ing in from other campus organiza- 
tions. Adelphia and Isogon have 
sponsored dames and programs to 
raise money. 

The ROTC, Skiing Club, Flying 
Club, and individual dormitories are 
only a few of the college groups 
which have donated a share to the 
new Memorial Hall. 

Rehearsals Begin 
For 'Girl Crazy' 

Operetta Guild rehearsals are un-

"Girl Crazy." 

The chorus rehearsals are under 
the direction of Asterid Hanson, 
class of 1952, who is also the accom- 
panist. The lead parts are being re- 
hearsed individually during free 
hours with Professor Doric Alviani, 
the director of the production. He is 
being assisted by Barbara Lawrence. 
student manager. Director Alviani 
hopes to begin rehearsing the com-

Each Contribution Counts 

Many contributions have 


three and four dollars, Howie Steff 
reported. But each donation, dimes 
or dollars, helps push the total a 
little higher toward the $300,000 

Any University organization desir- 
ing to make a donation to the War 
Memorial Drive is asked to send 
the contribution to Howie Steff, Vice 
Chairman of the War Memorial 
Fund, Memorial Hall.

10% Attendance At 
Gym Team Exhibit 

A paid attendance of 1096 was 
present at the exhibition put on by 
the Danish Gym team at the Cage 
last Friday night, according to Larry 
Briggs of the Physical Education De- 

The Danish Team, composed of 18 
men and 14 women, staged an exhi- 
bition of tumbling and apparatus 
work and folk dancing which was 
well received by the Amherst audi- 
ence, according to Briggs. 

This program marks the first time 
that the five Connecticut Valley Col- 
leges have joined their physical edu- 
cation departments in underwriting 
such a production. 

The team, which is in this country 
for a year, was quartered in campus 
dormitories during its stay here. The 
women were accommodated at the 
Abbey, and the men at Brooks House. 

Members of the team remained in 
Amherst to see the Rhode Island- 
UM football game on Saturday. It 
is believed that this is the first foot- 
ball game witnessed by the group.

end of the first half to trail 7-6, as 
they missed the conversion. A pass 
from Feristein to Bob Bishop gave

The letters printed in last week's Collegian re the long, long 
lines at the bookstore contain two suggestions which have definite 
merit as possible remedies for this problem which bedevils stu- 
dents at the beginning of every semester. 

Either of the suggestions presents an idea for the improve- 
ment of the situation. If, as is proposed, the bookstore were to be 
kept open for longer periods each day during the first few weeks 
,..' school, the overly long waits required to obtain books would be 
shortened considerably and might possibly be eliminated. If the 
>ther suggestion, that the cage be used as a self-service bookstore, 
were to be adopted, the entire time-wasting procedure could be 

finished off for good. 

There is no doubt that some action has to be taken in the 
matter. In past years, the lines have been long; this year they 
were longer than ever. During the first week of the semester stu- 
dents were required to wait as much as three or four hours before 
reaching the book counter. 

There is no need for this. There is no great obstacle to be 
overcome in correcting the trouble. Wiping out the difficulty re- 
presents nothing except a problem in planning. 

Obviously, the present facilities are not large enough to do 
the work of handing out books with the least loss of time. Then, 
the facilities must be enlarged. The bookstore should be kept open 
more hours, or, and this seems to us to be the better suggestion, 
a larger place should be made available for the few days it is 
needed each semester. If the new system requires the hiring of 
extra help, and there is no certainty that it would, that help 
should be hired. These are some of the details which are involved 
in solving the problem, and there will be others. However, all of 
them can be taken care of with a small amount of work. 

We ask that this work be done. The management of the book- 
store should formulate and put into action a new system which 
will allow students to obtain books with no time lost. And the 
student senate should appoint a committee which will formally 
request such a plan and help in carrying it out. 

The quicker this work is done, the better. We want to see this 
problem eliminated at the start of the next semester. There is no 
real reason to prevent that. 



Dear Editor: 

In last week's Collegian, Dr. Kad- 
cliffe stated that he had "full con- 
fidence in the abilities of the infirm- 
ary's staff of nurses." Maybe he has. 
I haven't! When I went to the in- 
firmary to receive "treatment" for a 
cut over my eye, the nurse there said 
that she couldn't remember how to 
make the bandage necessary to hold 
the edges of the cut together. I had 
to ihow her how to make it! 

If nurses don't even know how to 
make a simple bandage, how can we 
expect them to be competent enough 
to treat more severe injuries?

Washington, Oct. 17. The chairman 
of the President's Council of Eco- 
nomic Adivsers, Dr. Edwin G. Nourse, 
submitted his resignation to President 
Truman today. Dr. Nourse, who is

new program will probably cost the 
country about $300,000,000. 

Washington, Oct. 19. The first ses-

We wish the football team luck in its game with Vermont this 
Saturday. As we said two weeks ago, our opinion is that the team 
has the ability to beat anybody on its schedule. Despite last week's 
liscouraging and somewhat freakish loss to Rochester, that opin- 
ion hasn't changed. It's still g< ^d and it will be for the remaining 
?ames with Springfield and Ti s. 

To the Editor: 

After attending all the football | 
games this fall, it is evident that an' 
article should be written in criticism 1 
of the care given our injured players. I 

Although much praise should be 
extended to Dr. Kadcliffe in recogni- 
tion of the increased speed and effici- 1 
ency with which he attends to the 
injured players, it is apparent that 
the care given the players who aid 
severely injured is by no means ade- 

The improper method by which an 
injured player is removed from the 
playing field and the lack of atten- i 
tion which he receives upon being 
placed on the sidelines is definitely 
appalling. More than one groan has 
been heard, both from the field and 
the stands, as players have been 
carried from the field and placed 
clumsily on the sidelines by well- i 
meaning teammates trying so hard to; 
be careful but inevitably being crude 
and rough. 

Therefore, we should like to offer 
the following suggestions: 

1. The stretcher that is available 1 
at home games SHOULD BE USED! 
in removing a player with an injury) 
of undetermined extent. Also, ar- 
rangements should be made so that 
a stretcher will be available at games 
away from home. 

2. That a player with an injury 
of undetermined extent should receive 
prompt attention. In other words, if 
the player is apparently unable to j 
participate further in the game he 
should be removed to more suitable 
quarters for proper treatment, not lie 
Ott the ground indefinitely to catch 
cold, or to wander around as was the 
case during several games in the 

Proper precautions for and prompt 
attention to injuries will help to keep 
the morale of our team at its pres- 
ent high level. 

Sincerely yours, 

Art Schofield '51 
Marty Flynn '51

Adelphia, Isogon 
Plan Float Contest 
For Tufts' Rally 

Adelphia and Isogon announced to- 
day that the two organizations will 
sponsor a float contest for the next 
rally. The contest has been set up 
in an attempt to get more spirit into 
campus rallies, according to Barbara 
Kinghorn, chairman of the contest 

Floats to Appear at Rally 

The floats will be part of the pro- 
cession at the Tufts rally, to be held 
on campus Friday, November 11. It 
is hoped by the honorary societies 
that the Tufts' game will keep many 
students on campus who would other- 
wise go home for the long weekend. 

Any student or group of students, 
Stockbridge, four year or graduate, 
may enter the float contest. The floats 
themselves may be paraded under 
man, animal or machine power. The 
floats will join the rally procession at 
any place along the route of the rally 
down North Pleasant Street. The 
parade will start at QTV. 

The basis of the judging will be 
M points for originality, 20 points 
for craftsmanship, 20 points for the 
overall effect, 20 points for number 
of students actually participating in 
the parading of the float, which gives 
a total of 100 points. Persons enter- 
ing the contest will have all day-

Marching Drill Team and Band 
Highlight UM- Rochester Game 

One of the major highlights of the UM-Rochester football 
game Saturday was the exhibition of precision drilling to music 
as demonstrated by the girl's Drill Team and the Marching Band 
at the pre-game period and at half-time. 

Over 100 students took part in this program which included 
the spelling out of "H I GRADS" in welcome to the alumni return-

The demonstration reached its cli- 
max when the girls marched back 
to the home stands spelling out 
"FIGHT," followed bv the Band in 
a "UM." 

Few people realize the extensive 
preparation involved in these weekly 
presentations by the Hand and Drill 
Team. The 50 female drillers meet 
at the football field .six days a week 
under the direction of Doug Foot it 
and Wally Kallaugher. 

The lack of adequate time for 
practice makes it necessary for each 
girl to learn quickly and remember 
her part of the drill so that most 
of the week may be spent perfecting 
the formation. 

The University Marching Band, 
composed of 40 eapahle musicians has 
assumed ;I high status in entertaining 
football fans. With Bob Bertram 
back as director, after | year at the 
University of Hawaii, this college 
can boast one of the most talented

Redmen Blow Two 
Rochester Rallies 

UM Pass Boomerangs Put Yellowjackets in Lead Never to be Headed 

by Bill Dunn 

An alert University of Rochester 
football squad spotted the Redmen an 
early 13 point lead then roared back 
to score three times in the second 
]>eriod and go to defeat the locals 
27-20 last Saturday afternoon on Al- 
umni Field. A Homecoming gather- 
ing of 4800 fans witnessed the battle 
which was played under dark and 
threatening skies. 

The locals took the opening kick- 
off and immediately began to ham- 
mer away at the Rochester line but 
a 1") yard holding penalty put an 
abrupt end to this advance. After the 
"Yellow-Jackets" were stopped cold 
the Redmen took over and marched 
">0 yards for a score with Roth grab- 
bing a Johnston aerial and dashing 
15 yards for the tally. Rogers con- 
verted and the locals led 7-0. 

After the visitors failed to gain 
following the ensuing kickoff, the 
Redmen gained possession of the ball j 
in midfield and began a sustained 
drive that was culminated with > 
Feinman's slash off tackle for a i 
touchdown. The try for the extra 
point was wide and the score re- 1 
mained at 13-0. 

At this point the visitors decided 
to forsake the ground for the air- 
lanes where they met with pro- 
nounced success. Howd, the "Yellow- 
Jackets" ace passer began to hit his 
receivers with amazing accuracy. He 
connected with scoring tosses to Reid 
and Wren and the lads from the Ko-

Aggies Play to Second 
Deadlock of Season 

The Stockbridge Aggies battled to 
their second tie game in three starts 
as Wentworth Institute was stale- 
mated, 0-0, last Friday at Alumni 
Field. The game was a see-saw af- 
fair, n ith most of the action at mid- 
field. Cntttitnirif M parir 5 

of Ev Johnson and Hal Feinman when 
the Redmen were deep in Rochester 
territory would, if anyone would have, 
sparked the Eckmen to a quick t.d. 
at a time when it was imperative that 
they get one. 

Johnston had been the spark and 
ground gainer in the first half but 
he sat out while two opportunities 
were handed to the Redmen only to 
bog down. However, all the second 
guessing in the world is not worlh 
one iota if the Redmen cannot correct 
what appears to be their most glar- 
ing weakness to date, pass defense. 
The linemen again played the oppos- 
ing line into the ground, but without 
an adequate pass defense the Eckmen 
will find themselves grinding out 
three or four touchdowns only to 
have an inferior team equalize on 
long thrusts through the air, a la 

This has been a sad week-end in 
the UM sports picture with each and 
every team dropping decisions. How- 
ever, they all have an apportunity to 
bounce back next week when they 
will all be in action again with the 
busiest week-end of the fall season on 
dock. All UM squads will probably 
have their hands full starting with 
the footballers who travel to Vermont 
where the Catamounts will be look- 
ing for revenge for last year's 33-0 
beating. The cross country team, 
which has been having some difficulty 
lately, will travel to Cambridge to 
race the Harvards, while the Briggs- 
men tangle at Hartford with Trinity. 
The frosh teams will be back in action 
also with the booters meeting Willis- 
ton Acad, and the harriers, Spring-

provided the margin of victory by 
booting in two penalty kicks. 

Mt. Hermon tallied first in the in- 
itial canto but the UM's Norm Krock 
evened the score midway thru the 
first quarter. From this point, the 
UM booters were gradually worn 
down with the Mt. Hermon team 
scoring once in the second and third 
quarters. In the final period Mt.

Field. This defeat marked the first 
time since 1940 that a UM frosh e- 
leven had been defeated on their 
home grounds. 

The UM attack was more or less 
impotent and the Yellow-jacket frosh 
capitalized on a midfield fumble and 
a blocked kick in the end zone to set 
up their scores. There was no score- 
ing in the opening period but AIC's 
Gamble fell on a fumble at midfield 
in the second canto and AIC drove 
to the UM twenty where a pass from 
Passerini to Salvucci broke the dead- 

The other touchdown came in the 
fourth period when Sycorka fell on 
a blocked kick in the UM end zone.

They then proceeded with a drive

retaliated with a passing attack that 
had the Aggies baffled for a while,

I say "occasional visitors" because 
by some celestial fate, friends seem 
to stay clear of our floor ... as if 
speaking French would or could harm 
anyone. Then, of course, we of La 
Maison Francaise don't really mind. 
By the end of the first semester it 
will have been proven to those of you 
who have survived that the power of 
concentration which prevailed in La 
Maison Francaise as a result of the 
tranquil atmosphere was even higher 
than that prevailing at the Libe while

Hurts Rally Before

Last Friday's rally preceding the

was attended by a crowd estimate.! 
at not more than 300. The gathering, 
which was held at the Cage, followed 
a torchlight parade led by the band, 
the drill team, and two army tanks. 

Coach Eck, who spoke to the crowd 
in the Cage, expressed disappoint- 
ment at the small number present. 
He pointed out that those not sup- 
porting the team at the rallies would 
probably be the first to complain 
about its performance on the field. 

Harold Markarian, Bill Maasida, 
and Frank Sottile provided the com- 
edy aided by the student owner of 
the vintage 1935 hearae. The vehicle 
arrived at the finish of the rally to 
cart away the corpse of the Rochest- 
er football team.

Increase In Spirit Can Be Seen 
In This Year's Electioneering 

By Jawn 

As this article was being written, 
class election results had not been 
announced. Indeed, class elections had 
not even taken place; for the hour 
was midnight, Sunday, and all 

through the night not a campaigner 
was stirring. Therefore, as you read 
this, understand that all is in jest 
and without partiality. 

On the eve of this election day, 
however, it was interesting to note 
the amount of spirit and real honest 
endeavor that had gone into the cam- 
paigning. Some of the candidates had 
gone to a great deal of trouble and 
expense to get elected; others, simply 
shone in the background, content to 
let politics take its puzzling course. 

Most of those who threw their hats 
into the political ring, though, put up 
something of a campaign. And, al- 
though campaigning amounts to more 
than tacking posters and signs in 
conspicuous places, a fairly good 
index of candidates' ability could be 
garnered by looking over some of 
their campaign publicity. (Some day, 
who knows, the pages of this news- 
paper may run paid political ads!) 

Originality was the keynote of the 
whole election, we thought: Mitchell's 
banner in the college pond, Crawford 
and Kroek's streamer at halftime of 
the Rochester game, Segal's "hor- ! 
ribles". Camara's bookmarks, Buck- E. Creed 

P. Day 

ley's name painted on sidewalks, 
Leavitt's lavatory landmarks, and 
Dean's List commanded attention by 
their cleverness. 

By Monday night the votes will 
have been counted and by Thursday, 
the results officially announced (page 
1). Just for curiosity's sake, look at 
the names of the winners, then try 
and recall those who went out cam- 
paigning. Coincidence? 

Open House . . . 

Continued from page 1 
any interested persons. The members 
of the Radio Station will explain the 
machinations of broadcasting. 

During the program, President 
Van Meter will present the charter 
officially acknowledging WMUA as a 
campus activity. 

Refreshments consisting of coffee, 
cider, cupcakes, and cookies will be 
served by the Scrolls during the pro- 

David Meltzer is chairman of the 
affair; Secretary, Ann Provencher; 
Invitations, Betty Kreiger; Decora- 
tions, Irene O'Keefe; Refreshments,

Curran; Program, June Simons. 



The Animal Husbandry Club will 
have as a speaker, on November 1, 
Francis Austin, D.V.M., of Belcher- 
town, Mass. This is one of the many 
interesting programs presented by the 
Club every other Tuesday night. Re- 
freshments are served and social 
events are planned.

He is a trustee of the U of M and

The Stockbridge floriculture seniors 
attended the 4th annual United Flor- 
ists Trade Fair and School held at 
Horticultural Hall in Boston on Tues- 
day, October 18. The Trade Fair and 
School was sponsored by the North- 
eastern Florists' Association of which 
our own Dean of Horticulture, Prof. 
Clark L. Thayer, is a representative. 

The purpose of the school program 
was to give our floriculture majors 
an opportunity to see a group of the 
top floral designers of the eastern 
seaboard stage an exhibition of their 
new ideas in floral designing and 
decorating for the coming year. 

Transportation from the campus 
to the capital was provided by the 
students owning cars, and the entire 
trip was under the able direction of 
Prof. Donald E. Ross of the floricul- 
ture department. 

The Food Management majors arc- 
taking a trip to Boston, Thursday and 
Friday, together with the Fruit ma- 
jors. Here they will see how various 
products are marketed. Up to now 
no club has been formed in Food 
Management, but it is expected that 
one will be formed soon.

It was decided that 00' < of the 
funds collected this year be contri- 
buted to World Student Service 
Fund and the remaining 40'; will be 
allocated to various welfare organi- 
zations such as the March of Dimes 
and the Cancer Fund. 

Since WSSF functions both by and 
for the students and teachers of the 
world college and university commu- 
nity, the comnfittee voted -that this 
project receive the greater percent- 
age in the money distribution. It is 
mainly this fund that lenders hu- 
manitarian and cultural services to 
faculty and, especially, students at 
universities suffering from the af- 
termath of war or other social up-

Aaother sketch which drew wild 
applause from her audience was 
Miss Skinner's impression of a mod- 
ern mother attempting to tell her 
son "The facte of life." At the finish 
it is obvious that Junior knows just 
as much, if not more than his moth- 

Miss Skinner's humor was sharp 
and often bitter; sometimes risque 
but never coarse. Her stage presence 
was flawless, her timing smooth and 

Miss Skinner, in addition to being 
a charming and talented actress, 
does all her own writing and produc- 
ing. Many of her characterizations 
have been culled from the theatrical 
world which is her life's first love. 

It Is unfortunate that the aSO 
sary high prices prevented a great 
many students from attending. Tin-

ever, those students who did attend 
readily admit that it was well worth

Oath; Senate Asks 
/Vo Classes Nov, 12 

The second meeting of the new 

Student Senate took place last Tues- 
day evening at 7:00 p.m. at Old 
"'hapel Auditorium. 

Al the first item on the docket, the 
class elections were approved. Then' 
was a recount of ballots for the of 
fice of the Sophomore 1'resident, since 
Candidates Walt Poster and Ray 
Buckley had received 80 and 81 votes 
respectively. Buckley, however, proved 
to be the winner by one vote. 

Dean Robert S. Hopkins then spoke, 
urging the Senate to take action on 
three specific counts. One was the 
committee which was appointed to in- 
vestigate the parking problem on 
campus. "We have only 800 spaces 
for the estimated 2000 cars which are 
now on the University grounds," said 
the dean. He also stated that with 
winter, the problem will become more 
acute. "If definite steps are not taken 
soon." he added, "measures may have 
to be made to remove some of the 
cars from the campus." 

Dean Hopkins' second statement 
concerned the posting of political ral- 
ly signs on the campus, which is con- 
trary to University rules. He ex- 
plained that the persons whose names 
appeared on the signs would be held 
responsible for their removal. 

The dean also called attention to 
the fact that rules about not walking 
on the grass are not being observed.

Mr. Hundeiup read a speech which 
was originally scheduled to be deliv-

The new lab has facilities for trail 
ing 500 engineering students in the 
field of civil, mechanical, and elec- 
trical engineering. 

After the dedication ceremonies the 
visitors were taken on a tour of the 
new lab. 

Officers Sworn In 

Following this talk, two newly- 
elected Fraternity representatives and 
the sixteen new class officers were 
sworn in by Chief Justice John Mc- 

The motion was passed that if a 
Senator had three unexcused abaci 
during a semester, he be removed 
from the senate by approval of the 
Executive Committee. 

The suggestion was then made th;it 
no classes be held Saturday morning, 
November 12, following Armistice 
Day. The matter will be given fur- 
ther consideration.

Hawley Promises 
Bookstore Action 

The administration is fully aware 
that a change is necessary in the 
book store situation and is taking the 
necessary steps to improve the 
bottleneck, a cc ord ing to Treasurer 

Robert Hawley, who was interviewed 
this week, concerning the sugges- 
tions made in the ('<>//« gian last 

"The admimst ration appreciates 
the inconvenience the long Ixiok store 
lines cause the students," asserted 
Hawley, "ami by the lime the second 
M neater arrives we hope to evolve a 
plan to eliminate the long waits 
which occurred this fall." 
. At present the plan is 
still in its embryonic stages, but Mr. 
Hawley promised to inform the stu- 
dent body via the ('<>ll< i/ian as soon 
as the system is whipped into shape. 

A plan whereby many of the texts 
will be distributed in classrooms is 
being set up. 

Continuing, Mr. Hawley pointed 
out the fact that lack of space and 
the limitations of student help have 
prevented the administration from 
alleviating the situation in the^past. 

Commenting on the suggestions 
made in the last issue of the Cotltff- 
ian for improving the book store sit- 
uation, Mr. Hawley pointed out that 
a book cafeteria in the Cage would 
be subjected to many loopholes, hut 
indicated an increase in the book 
store hours is being considered. 

Fuchs, Istomin Will Appear Monday 


The University will play host to 
two of the most talented musicians in J 

j show-business on Monday night, Doric j 
Alviani reported. Joseph Fuchs and 
Eugene Istomin have been asked by' 
the Conecert Association to give one 
of their brilliant performances. 

Fuchs' interest in music originated 
when his father suggested that he j 
take violin lessons to exercise his! 
fingers in order to overcome an in- j 
jury to his left hand. He took to it; 
so fast and so well that he came to 

| be considered a child prodigy. As he 
continued playing, he became more 
and more in request and is today 
highly acclaimed by the nation's great 
newspapers and critics. 

One of the favorite stories about 
Fuchs is the one where in a musical 

j marathon he outlasted Jascha Heifitz, 
and when the latter came over to con- 
gratulate him, he replied that he only 

around 18,000 and hope is expressed 
for an even greater crowd this year. 

Directed by l'rof. Mathieu ami Prof. 
Dickinson, the main theme of the 
show will be the educational exhibit 
of applied science and arboriculture. 
All departments of the Horticulture 
School will present exhibits relative 
to their work. The commercial florists 
in this area have also been invited to 
put on exhibitions. 

The student 10 feet by 10 feet ex- 
hibits have been separated into three 
classes: formal, informal, and minia- 
ture. A first place ten dollar award 
will be presented to each group, along 
with a second place prize of five dol- 

The slate award of purple rose! 
will be given to the best student ex- 
hibit. Awards are made by the Massa- 
chusetts State Department of Agri- 
culture and are based on theme, suit- 
ability of plant materials, workman- 
ship and color. The following exhibits 
will be displayed: 
Formal :

To Name Solicitors 
For Chest Drive 

The Campus Chest committee this 
week announced further plans for the 
nine-day campaign which will begin 
with a dance to be held at Drill Hall 
following the Tufts football rally next 
Friday night. 

At the meeting held last Tuesday 
a sub-committe was appointed to can- 
vass all dorms and houses on campus. 
Its members are: Walter Foster,

this committee will appoint canvas- 
sers for each house and dorm.

Investigating Committee 

We Bote with interest the appointment last week of a student senate 
committee to investigate and report on the Student Health Service The 
group will act as a formally established clearing house to gather and sift 
information regarding the health service with the view of ev, ntua lly mak- 
i„X recommendations for any improvements which may bt needed. 

By askinx questions and, with the help * the entire senate, by obtain- 
inx the praise or complaints or recommendations of the students the com- 
mittee may be able to form a complete picture of the health, show- 
ing where it is strong and where it is weak. 

If it receives the proper amount of cooperation from the rest of the 
senate and from the students the committee can contribute a valuable bit 
of work. From its findings, the committee can make a definite statement 
setting forth what it considers to be right about the health service and what 
it considers to be wrong. The statement can point to any necessary Improve- 
ment! and it can present a request to the president and to the dean* that 
means be found for obtaining such improvements. 

Of the information so far obtained in the form of letters to the Colle- 
gian there have been sixteen favorable comments and there have been five 
complaints. Only one of the complaints has been printed; of the other four, 
three were unsigned and the last contained a request that the signature be 
withheld. These four must be considered less substantial evidence than that 
contained in the other comments even though the complaints appear to be 

.alid. ,j i tU 

The letters indicate that there is still much to be said and we ask the 
students to take the opportunity to say it. The letters also indicate, in our 
estimation, that there is a need for betterment of the health service. Whether 
or not this opinion is justified could be shown by the work of the new 


The committee can obtain a certain amount of pertinent material by- 
asking questions, but the main sources for information are the patients 
who have been treated at the infirmary. We know the committee can state 
the ease effectively if it is given a chance to do its job, and once the case 
is set forth, a base is provided for whatever action may be required 


New Residents

mer student of French may apply 
for residence" to the French corri- 
dor in Thatcher. We heartily en-

administration and girls of French

applications for residence.

Miss Merriam Leader In Home Ec Glut 

If you were to ring the doorbell 
at the Homestead, you might be 
greeted by the smiling face of little, 
dark-haired Miss Merriam, the in- 
structor of Home Management. 

Visiting her in her office at Skin- 
ner Hall, you might notice on the 
desk a bright colored magazine en- 
titled: "Colhecon." This means "Col- 
lege Home Economics," and is a 
publication of the National College 
Clubs of American Home Economics 
Association, of which clubs Miss Mer- 
riam is a national advisor.

She is very much interested in 
this organization. Last year as its 
advisor, she attended the annual con- 


New York, Oct. 24— Claiming that 
then- were no international prob- 
lems so great that they could not 
be solved by men of good will. Pres- 
ident Truman reaffirmed his faith in 
the United Nations today at the lay- 
ing of the permanent cornerstone of 
the organization. He urged that the 
U.N.'s plan for the control of atomic 
energy be accepted, unless a better 
OBC is offered. 

Prague, Czechoslovakia, Oc(. 25 — 
John Hey, a United States Embassy 
worker in Prague was ordered today 
by the Communist Czechoslovak gov- 
ernment to leave the country i i 
charges of industrial spying. Mea i- 
while, it was reported in London t) 
the Soviet Union has asked Yttgos 
via to recall her Ambassador to Mos- 

Washington, Oct. 26— Although 
President Truman signed the new 
minimum wage bill today raising the 
minimum rate per hour from 4(1 to 
7"> cents, the textile workers have 
started a campaign for a national 
minimum of $1 per hour. 

Washington, Oct. 27 — The leader of 
the Navy's attack on defense policies, 
Admiral Louis Denfield, was removed 
today as Chief of Naval Operations. 
The decision was made by President 
Truman after Francis P. Matthews, 

Secretary of the Navy, asked that 
the admiral be transferred to another

weight boxing champion, were killed

bound from Paris to New York 
crashed in flames against an Azores 

Washington, Oct. 29 — President 
Truman's impounding of a sum of 
$615,000,000 voted by Congress for 
airplanes for the Air Force may con- 
tribute to a widening gap between 
the President and Congress on de- 
fense policies, it was believed by- 
some Washington observers today. 
The dismissal of Admiral Denfield 
has already set a basis for contro- 
versey between the President and 
Congress when Congress reconvenes 
in January. 

St. Louis, Oct. 30— Vice President 
Rarkley has at last announced that

been:" f o llow ed by three designations, 
"thoroughly adequate", "adequate", 
and "unsatisfactory". Eight of the

all over the United States. Miss Mer- 
riam, as an advisor, will meet with 
the national officers to plan the next 
year's home ec program.

Jawn Suggests Campus Improvements 

One night last week, I took part in 
a very lively, yet comical, bull-session 
at a fraternity house in which the 
particular topic of conversation was 
the "Improvement of the I'niversity 
of Massachusetts." 

The group reached the conclusion 
that the school should seriously in- 
augurate a "Do - You - Like - This- 
School? — Then-Buckle-Up- You-Mis- 
erable-Raf'Wcck with the following 
7 point program as its foundation: 

1. Full - time employees should 
stand in front of the entrances to the 
"Passion Pit" making certain that 
every person who goes in is supplied 
with blinders (for the eyes, you 
numbskull!) of the type that milk- 
wagon horses used to wear. These are 
to prevent students from staring 
around the library, thus encouraging 
study habits. 

2. Instead of giving 2 free tickets 
to a football game or 2 free meals at 
the Yankee Pedlar as prizes for win- 
ners of the Amherst football pool, 
first prize should be two free tickets 
to the college store on Tues., Thurs., 
and Sat., at 1 1 o'clock. Very practical,

Redmen Suffer Third Setback

Basketball Notice 
Anyone interested in varsity

By Bill Luti 

The Catamounts of Vermont Uni- 
versity dined on Redmen last Satur- 
day at Burlington. The check read, 

Costly miscues of several varieties 
hurt the Redmen grievously at cru- J 
cial stages, stalled a couple of hot 
threats, and provided the Cats with 
scoring chances which were too juicy 
to pass up. 

Th t . Eckmen were set back on their 
heels right after the opening kickoff 
when Don Sisson attempting to punt, 
failed to get a good piece of the ball 
and it dribbled into the path of the 
charging Vermonters on the 20 yard 
line. A left handed Kehoe pass ate 
up 14 of the 20, a five yard repri- 
mand (or offside against the Redmen 
on fourth down moved the ball down 
to the two and gave the Cats another 
whack, but the Redmen held. 

After Sisson kicked out of the end 
zone to his own 37, Vermont came 
back through the air to score. Ke- 
hoe, finding the opposing pass de- 
fense easy pickings, chucked to Tia- 
verse for 13 and to Art Pruneau on 
the two to set up the TD. Ballard 
bashed over the middle and Captain

mont started on its own 46 and, tak- 
ing to the air again, went the dis- 
tance in four plays. Ursprung calmly- 
added the point and Vermont led 14- 

The UM attack stuttered and sput- 

tered and the half was nearing its 

end when the Redmen finally manu- ^ ^ ^^ 

factured a break. A Feinman punt 

rolled dead on the Vermont six. Vi- 

and Ed McGrath, who graduated, is

Warren, Anderson and Johnston. 

cious tackling prodded the ball loose 
on the first Vermont running play 
and Doherty recovered for the Red- 
men on the six yard line. Jackie Be- 
noit then started off tackle, swung 
wide to the right instead, and 
chugged into the corner for six 
points. Rogers' attempt to halve the 
deficit failed. 

McManus Goes 52 
Shortly after the start of the sec- 
ond half, UM eafety man, John Mc- 
Manus, spun 52 amazing yards for 
the run of the day to the Vermont 
18. The dash went for nought, how- 
ever, when the usually reliable An- 
derson dropped a screen pass which 

The Blue and White came back 
strong to tally on some fine running 
by Ferestain, Cox, Drake, and Siak, 
and some great pass receiving by 
Charles Rogers. Drake plunged over 
for that touchdown, but Ferestien's

Vermont made it 20-ti a few mo

midfield to the Mass. IP. St. Gela 
wasted no time, stunning the Ret, 
men by going the distance behind 
matted blocking. Upspring's attempt 
was no good. 

From this point, with a little more 
than a period left and needing three 
touchdowns to win, the undaunted 
Redmen filled the air with passes 
and laterals trying desperately to 
get back in the ball game. With 
Russ Beaumont doing most of the 
chucking, the Redmen completed 10 
of 22 passes for 141 yards— but only 
one touchdown. One push carried to 
the Vermont 7 yard stripe where 
with first and goal, Beaumont was 
smeared on the 21 trying to jettison 
a pass. Two more passes went in- 

Vermont kicked out to the UM 37 
and the Eckmen, with less than a 
minute remaining, ate up the 63 
yards in six plays. The payoff shot

4-H Club Holds 
Annual Husking Bee 
At Bowditch Lodge 

The 4-H Club, under the leadership 
of its president, Ken Morrison, held 
its annual husking bee last Saturday 
night at Bowditch Lodge. 

Decorations ranged all the way 
from orange streamers to dry corn 
stalks proped against the walls. Music 
was provided by records. The earliest 
arrivals were taught new dance steps 
for the "kola" by caller Paul Channel. 
When approximately thirty people 
had appeared, the square dancing 
really got underway. As part of the 
third dance, everyone joined whole- 
heartedly in the husking of the corn, 
Marching feverishly for the tradi- 
tional red ears. 

Cider and doughnuta lefreshed the 
square dancers who were sorely in 
need of energy after the husking had 
been completed. 

Although the dance was carefully 
planned, there was MM slight draw- 
back — scarcity of men. 

Chaperons were Mr. Doric Alviani 
tad Mr. Horace Jones, adviser to the 
4-H Club.

to the various classes; and to them 
the Stockbridge column reporters ex- 
tend special greetings and good 
wishes for the coming year. 

For seniors and freshmen alike this 
column aims to provide up-to-the

Dr. Miller Speaks 
At SCA Conference 

The annual fall conference of the 
Pioneer Valley Intercollegiate Coun- 
cil took place at Skinner Hall last 
week-end, as representatives from 
Smith, Mt. Holyoke, Springfield, and 
Amherst Colleges gathered on cam- 
pus. The delegates registered Satur- 
day morning for a two-day program 
of discussion and entertainment. 
Miller Speaks 

Saturday's program was highlight- 
ed by two addresses given by Mr. 
Alexander Miller, a Presbyterian 
minister and main speaker of thp con- 
ference. Mr. Miller was the former 
General Secretary of the New Zealand 
Student Christian Movement from 
1934-1936. He received his M.A. at 
the University of New Zealand and 
is now doing graduate work in social 
.-tudies at Union and Columbia. 

His two addresses "What is a 
Christian Job?", and "Choosing our 
Particular Job" were followed by 
seminars in which Mr. Miller's talks 
were discussed and evaluated. The 
discussions were led by Rev. William 
Cole from Smith; Dr. William Ross, 
head of the UM physics department; 
Rev. Michael Rooney, curate of St. 
John's Episcopal Church in North- 
ampton; Dr. Hal Hustin of Am- 
herst; Rev. Kenrick Baker, assistant 
chaplain at First Congregation- 
al Church and Mrs. Ralph Williams. 

Sunday's program began with wor- 
ship service sponsored by UM in 
which the SCA choir participated. 
This was followed by Mr. Miller's 
third address. "Modern pressures and 
modern responsibilities". 

After dinner at Draper Annex, 
panel discussions were held on "How- 
can one be a Christian at his job?", 
with representatives of a variety of 
vocations including a scientist, a law- 
yer, a social worker, a home maker, 
and a missionary worker. 

Recreation by Springfield, UM 

Recreation for the conference con- 
sisted of dancing and games, Satur- 
day afternoon and evening. Ted Par- 
sons, '52, was caller for the square 
dancing Saturday night and Luise 
Moncey provided music with her ac- 
cordion. The entertainment was under 
the direction of U of M and Spring- 
field students. 

The program was concluded by 
worship services directed by Amherst 

Co-chairmen for the conference 
were Harry Childs of Springfield and 
Jeannette York of Smith. 

A misinterpretation in the reading 
of the invitations prompted many of 
the visitors to understand that they 
were invited to drop in anytime be- 
tween 2:00 and 6:00. However, inas- 
much as the broadcast was a continu- 
ous program, many of the guests, 
unfortunately, missed the first part 
of the exercises. . . 

Telephone Lines Laid 

The telephone lines connecting Am- 
herst College radio station, WAMF, 
and WMUA were laid last Monday 
afternoon. This line will bring about 
the realization of the plan to broad- 
cast reciprocal pro gra ms between 
Amherst College and the [) of M. 

Lines have now been installed be- 
tween Mem Hall, Drill Hall, Skinner 
Hall, Bowlcer Auditorium, the ( 
the Athletic Field and the radio stu- 
dio at South College. 

The remote engineering depart- 
ment is now working on an intra-sta- 
tion telephone line. . . 

WMUA went on the air officially 
Monday night, October 81, from 7:00 
p.m. to 10:00 p.m. 

Broadcasting to be Kxtended 

Next week, extended programing 
will be carried on, including after- 
noon shows. It is expected that in the 
very near future a 12:00 to 12:00 
schedule will be realized. Amherst 
College will also be contributing pro- 
grams at that time. . . 

Paul Pincus is now the Chief En- 
gineer in Charge of the operations' di- 
vision, Wayne Langill, Station Man- 
ager, announced this week. . . 

The studio at South College has 
been completely redecorated. Tho con- 
trol booth and the announcing booth 
have been partitioned off from the 
rest of the studio. 

New drapes have been hung and 
the walls have been repainted in 
tones of cream and hunter's green. 

There still remains some work to

decoration of the studio; however,

Goldberg Elected 
Association Head 

Dr. Maxwell Goldberg, university 
professor of English, was elected to 
two important educational offices in 
New England this week. At the fall 
conference of the New England Col- 
lege English Association held at 
Boston University, Dr. Goldberg was 
elected president of the organization; 
and at a meeting held at Harvard 
University, he was elected faculty 
chairman of the Executive Commit- 
tee of the New England Region of 
World Student Service Fund. 

Dr. Goldberg, who succeeds Prof. 
Walter Simmons of Rhode Island 
State College as president of the or- 
ganization, has been serving the 
group as vice-president. In addition, 
he acted as program chairman for 
the spring session of the conference 
which was held last May on the Uni- 
versity campus, and for the fall con- 
ference held at Boston University. 

In accepting his new position, Dr. 
Goldberg stated, "Throughout, we 
have sought to define our emphasis 
as focusing upon our functions, pri- 
marily as teachers. We have been in- 
terested in scholarship and criticism, 
true. But we have had this interest 
primarily as an incentive to our 
teaching and as a source of our per- 
sonal enrichment, hence our enriched 
service as teachers." 

Dr. Goldberg has done a great deal 
of work for international student or- 
ganizations, and served as a delegate 
last fall to a convention of the Inter- 
national Student Service group at 
Wells College. 

In his new office for WSSF, Dr. 
Goldberg will be working for an or- 
ganization which functions both by 
and for the students and teachers of 
the world college and university com- 
munity. WSSF was named last week 
as the recipient of 60 f ; of the funds 
to be collected in the Campus Chest 
Campaign which will be held from 
November 11 to November 19.

Mrs. Whipple, housemother at the 
Abbey, says tha; her collection of 
over 100 mineral specimens all stems 
from the efforts of the students to 
"educate" her. 

When she first came to Amherst, 
Mrs. Whipple had no knowledge of 
geology. But one of her proctors was 
vary interested in that subject, parti- 
cularly in that subject, mineralogy. 
Because she was rather fascinated by 
Amherst, its mountain and valley con- 
tours, the housemother allowed her- 
self to be enticed into accompanying 
he students on field trips. 

Soon Mrs. Whipple found that she 
could distinguish between a mountain 
and a chip of mica. Encouraged by 
her increasing understanding and the 
enthusiastic students, she hurried out 
and bought herself a "ShoKmann's 
Mineral Kit". 

Almost immediately her collection 
began. Of the 100 specimens she 
possesses today, she has found and 
identified many herself. Others haw 
been given to her bv friends. 

By Sylvia Kingsbury 

Her assortment is carefully laid 
out in rows of small labeled boxes. 
In addition to her many local speci- 
mens, she has minerals from several 

foreign countries. 

Samples from Africa 

From South West Africa BOS lias 
samples of: azurite, malachite, and 
corundum crystals. She has opal from 
Japan, pyromorphite and heniatitie 
i from England. From India she has a 
piece of "oolite", a type of limestone 
mainly composed of rounded grains 
resembling insects eggs (Or. "mm," 
an egg.) The collection includes wul- 
fenite, from Arizona; moss agate, 
from Oregon; and epidote from Alas- 

From our neighboring Notch Road 
Quarry are specimens of prehonite, 
amethyst, slickenside, and calcite. 
Other nearby quarries are represent- 
ed by many interesting samples. 

Mrs. Whipple recalls many amusing 
incidents in her searches for minerals. 
Her explorations have taken her over 
most of this locality. 

Terrific Time 

One of her adventures was a \ 
by herself and a group of Students 
to a talc mine at Chesterfield. Ver- 
mont. In their searching and ham 
niering, they collected a great many 
lame backs, hammered Angers, and 
I ruined stockin:- They even acquired 
many good specimens, including: ae- 
tinolite, magnetite crystals, pyrite. 
prodorite, and talc. 

Mrs. Whipple finds her hobby very 
enjoyable. She i.s constantly adding to 
her collection and to her knowledge. 
Recently, much to her amazement 
when walking in Lover's Lane ("men- 
ly walking", she specified) she found 
a crystal of mica, a very unusual 

Thus with the aid of the students 
and her own keen interest, Mrs. Whip- 
ple is getting "educated" to the world 
which Geology 27 students find ran 
be more trouble than interest at times.

European Spirit 
Amazes Student 

By Irene Bresnick 

(Ed. Note: This is the second in 
a series of two articles by Irene 
Bresnick on her NSA-sponsored Eu- 
ropean trip this summer.) 

In England we met students at 
Oxford and Cambridge. We were all 
very interested in comparing the 
educational systems of our country 
with those of European countries, 
and to discuss with foreign student: 
the merits of both. We learned the' 
the systems of Oxford and Cam- 
bridge are highly specialized, but we 
also concluded that there is a great 
divergence in the secondary schools 
of England and the United States. 
Their high school systems ar- much 
more complete than ours and more 
emphasis is placed ^n the liberal 
! background. We found similar differ- 
ences in other European school sys- 
tems as compared with our own. 

The spirit of the European student 
was most amazing to us. He show;-, 
no apathy or indifference to any field 
of knowledge, whether it relates to 
his own field or whether it is not 
even remotely connected. All the stu- 
dents that we met spoke English 
quite well, and most of them could 
speak another language in addition 
to their own. Not only could they 
speak English, but, as in the case of 
some engineering students that we 
met in Delft, Holland, they were so 

I well versed in both English and 
j American literature that we were 

Communist Fiesta 

The trip took us through places of 
interest in England, France, and 

| Holland— Westminster Abbey, St. 
Paul's Cathedral, the House of Par- 
liament, Versailles, the Louvre, and 
the Champs-Elysees. In addition a 
few of us travelled for two weeks 
through the mountains of Switzer- 
land and then into Italy. Perhaps 
some of my more lasting memories 
will be those of the Communist Fi- 
esta which we attended in Florence, 
the open air opera at Caracalla in 
Rome, the sidewalk cafes of Paris, 
the canals of Holland, and most of

A record-breaking crowd of 20,600 jammed the Cage last

Fne curtain will rise for the first night's performance of "Girl 
Crazy", the Operetta Guild's first musical production this year 
on next Wednesday evening. Judging from the rehearsals, cast, 
and general enthusiasm of the members, the Guild expects that 
the show will be a smashing success in its four day run Wednes- 
day through Saturday. 

The scene of the story is a small town in Arizona, where Dan 
(Edward Purrington), a New York playboy, goes to 

visit his father who ..wns a ranch on 
the outskirts .if the town. However. 
Dan brings the bright lights and Ray 
life of New York with him, and con- 
verts his father's corrals and barns 
into | cosmopolitan dude ranch, com- 
plete with an overstocked bar and 
gambling room.

bert Nadeau) decides to run for sher- 
iff, and gets into complications with 

the local constabulary in doing go. 

Romance ensues when I>an falls 
in love with Molly (Lorna Wilson) 
the post-girl. His friend Sam Mason 
(Gordon Taylor) tries to take Molly 
away from Dan who resents his in- 
tentions, and the conventional vicious 
triangle follows. Molly agrees to go 
to Mexico *ith Sam but Dan, the 
persistent lover, follows them. Which 
one of these Broadway bachelors will 
she marry?

The comical antics of Kate (Mary

U M Booters Battle To 1-1 Tie With Highly-Favored Amherst 

Outweighed Redmen Succumb Gunn Sparkles in Goal as Briggsmen Upset Amherst 

As Sorinefield Rolls, 22-0 For Third Straight Year; Two Overtime Periods 

r © 7 ! — by Tony Schreide 

by Bill Dunn 

A fast, hard hitting Springfield col 
lege football team handed the Red 
men their fourth defeat of the sea- 
son last Saturday afternoon in 
Springfield to the tune of 22-0. The 
Dad's Day victory was witnessed by 
more than (»000 fans who sal through 
:t drizzling rain to see the fray. 

Led by the sparkling Keith King 
who personally accounted for 14 of 
the Gymnast! ^- points, the Spring- 
field backs operating behind a gar- 
gantuan line gained more than 400 
yards on the ground. The Massachu- 
setts forward wall although out- 
weighed by more than 25 lbs. per 
man offarsd stiff resistance until the 
fateful second half when Spring- 
tield's weight advantage took a tell- 
ing effect. 

6-0 At Half 

The comparatively uneventful first 
half was highlighted by a kicking 
duel between Sisson and Friberg. Sis- 
son's booming P*nta kept the Ha* 
POOB pretty well in check 'till mid- 
way in the second canto when they 
put on a sustained march that covered 
60 yards in 10 plays with King scor- 
ing M a smash off his own right 
tackle. The PATD was wide and the 
half ended with the score 6-0. 

The Springfield behemoths added a 
touchdown and a safety in the third 
period to assume a 15-0 margin. The 
last quarter found the Redmen tak- 
ing to the airlanes in a desperate 
attempt to get back in the ball game. 
After King had increased the Gym- 
nasts lead to 22-o with a scintillating 
67 yard dash to paydirt, Beaumont 
replaced Benoit at tailback for the 
Eckmen and proceeded to connect 
with several tosses to Bill Looney 
only to have Correale intercept an 
ermnt aerial deep in his own terri- 
tory, and the game ended a few plays 
later with the ball in Springfield's 
possession in midfield. 

For the outmanned Redmen Marty 
Anderson flashed brillantly. His 34 
yard run in the initial period was a 
gem, and he accounted for the major 
portion of the yardage gained by the 
locals on the ground. The entire club 
headed by Struzziero played well on 
defense and though beaten, were cer- 
tainly not humbled. 

This week's contest with Tufts will 
be the finale for the many seniors 
mi the squad. An average season can 
suddenly turn into a successful one 
if the Jumbos are upset. The team 
deservea the support of the entire 
campus and it is hoped that a capac- 
ity crowd will be on hand, not only 
for the game Saturday, but for the 
rally Friday as well. 

Without fear of being called 
driveling sentimentalist, etc., etc., th 
writer wishes to go on record ; 
picking the Redmen to beat the hea\ 
fly favored visitors from Modford.

The Jumbos are now sporting a 4-

Interest in this year's Honorary 
Colonel selection has been very keen, 
and the number of spectators at the 
voting in Bowker together with the 
Cadets filled the auditorium. 

Scholarship Established 

With proceeds from the large at- 
tendances at the Military Balls of 
the past two years, a scholarship 
was established by the Military De- 
partment to aid incoming freshman 
students. It is the sincere hope of 
the R.O.T.C. staff to maintain this ; 
scholarship in the interests of the 
student body of the university. 

In Duke Ellington, the Military 
Ball Committee has obtained one of 
the finest and most popular orches- 
tra leaders in the nation. The Duke 
is perhaps best known for his own 
musical style of which "Mood Indi- 
go" is typical. In contrast to those 
who associate Ellington with jazz, 
he has led excellent dance orchestras, 
and his performance at the ball on 
December 2nd, should be ample 
proof of that. 

The 1949 Campus Chest drive g>t 
off to a good start last Friday night 
with a record dance sponsored by the 
committee that netted $121 for the 

Dance chairman Jean llazelton re- 
ported that almost 100 couples at 
tended the dance, which featured m 
termission entertainment by Edwin 
Jaaiaaki, Herb Holden, and Hank 
Shensky. Recorded music was fur- 
nished by Pan] Channel. 

Walter Foster, solicitation chair- 
man, reported] that as of Tuesday a 
total of *112.<)<> had bean turned in. 
Student Aid Needed 
Prof. Maxwell H. Goldberg, facul- 
ty adviser to the drive committee, 
emphasized again that the World 
Student Service Fund defnnd* solely 
upon student contributions such as 
those from the Campus Chest drive. 
Dr. Goldberg said he was 
impressed with the attitude toward 
WSSF aid of a number of foreign 
students with whom he sssoeisted 
for two weeks last summer.

Mills Holds First 
Dorm Housewarming 
On Eve of Holiday 

The first dormitory housewarming 
dance within the recent history of 
the U of M was held last Thursday 
evening at Mills. The spacious recre- 
ation room was decorated with care, 
and this, combined with the soft 
lighting was suggestive of anything 
but the dormitory atmosphere. 

Pros, and Mrs. Van Meter were 
p re s en t, as were I lean and Mis. Hop- 
kins. WMUA provided a smooth- 
functioning loudspeaker system and 
records for the enjoyment of the man 
of the house and their goesta. 

The Entertainment Committee was 
successful in providing an outstand-

tured at intermission were I.uise

with her accordion selections, and AI

Speakers For WSSF Explain Ami 
To Solicitors For Chest Campaign] 

Robert West of Yale University and 
former National Vice-President of 
NSA, spoke to a meeting of the 
Campus Chest solicitors Tuesday 
night, November 8, on behalf of the 
World Student Service Fund. 

He explained that there was still a 
definite need in Europe, and that 
failure on the part if American stu- 

Alsu speaking on behalf of. 1 
drive were Mr. Fietee Schulenberrf 
an exchange student from <i< nnu: I 
at Amherst College, who describ^l 
the German students' Condition*! 
Miss Mimi Hawkins, chairman of ;r ,| 
recent WSSF drive at Smith CoUqJ 
who outlined the techniques used a| 
Smith in their campaign for fund>. 


A news item, datelined Washington, Monday of this week, 
caught our attention and left us with a greater understanding of 
the reasons why Smith College possesses a completely equipped 
teaching plant and an affluence which has enabled it to obtain 
and hold its present stature in the academic world. 

The particular reason we see here is the spirit, we can even 
say the indomitable spirit, of Smith Women as exemplified by 
Mrs. Francis I. McGarraghy of Washington, chairman of a bene- 
fit committee of the Smith Alumnae Club. 

The other morning, as the news story relates, Mrs. McGar- 
raghy was attacked by a panther as she was being interviewed 
on a daily radio program known M "Brunch with Nan and Bill." 
The lady from Smith was telling Nan and Bill about the benefit 
show which she directs when this panther prowling about the 
studio spied the mink furpiece which Mrs. McGarraghy wore. 
His snarls drowning out the speaker's voice, the panther sprang 
at her, fastened his teeth and claws in the furpiece and dragged 

it to the floor. 

Nan— probably a product of Vassar, Wellesley, or somesuch 
—fled from the scene; Bill remained at the mike to give a full 
account of the story ; Mrs. McGarraghy managed a nervous laugh 
and assured the audience that "he didn't even scratch me." This 
while the growling beast in back of her was still busy ripping 
the mink scarf to pieces. To a question a few minutes later she 
stated that she "didn't mind it at all." "After all," she added, 
"it was wonderful publicity for our Smith benefit show." What 
poise, what unselfish devotion to the cause. With workers such 
as Mrs. McGarraghy, Smith has cause to give thanks, this being 
the season for it. (Women of the university you see what lies 
ahead. Mind not to wear your mink to radio programs.) 

Speaking of contributions reminds us that the school owes 
thanks to its own alumni, particularly for aid in financing the 
building program with an investment totalling almost three mil- 
lion dollars since 1939. 


Report From Infirmary 

To the Editor: 

My letter on the infirmary question 
will probably arrive at a most op- 
portune moment — I say opportune, 
because (1) this controversy is now 
in the open and (2) perhaps the sen- 
sationalism of my bicycle accident 
and the knowledge gained from my 
week's stay in the infirmary will 
make my testimony valid. 

Contrary to rumors and general 
impressions that I had received as an 
unscathed freshman and sophomore, 
my sojourn at the university infirm- 
ary was complete with efficient care 
plus appetizing trays and courteous 
attention. Both Dr. Radcliffe and his 
nurses were prompt in their medical 
care to my cut eye and various 
bruises, and they secured against 
future complications by the tetanus 

It would seem now that any stu- 
dent who has been so ill could also 
write the Collegian either to criti-

Sportsday Publicity 

To The Editor: 

We are somewhat puzzled by the 
recent decision of the Cidlegiau that 
there was no room for an article ad- 
vertising the University Sportsday 
held last Friday. The purpose of the 
Sportsday was to raise funds for the 
varsity "M" club athletic scholarship. 
We justly expected cooperation in 
our publicity campaign from a Col- 
legian that has openly advocated 
support of school athletic functions. 

We were interested to note that 
some of the Springfield papers 'had 
room' to give us some of our much 
needed publicity. We expected at 
least an equal amount of effort on 
your part.

T< the Editor: 

It will be very much appreciated 
if you can publish in the Collegian 
my feelings concerning the rally here 
on the campus on the evening of No- 
vember 11, 1949. 

It has been my privilege and pleas- 
ure to be on quite a number of col- 
lege campuses in one capacity or an- 
other and I have had the opportunity 
of seeing a great deal of campus 
spirit. 1 must say that the spirit that 

was demonstrated by all those who 
participated in the parade and rally 
on November 11 was excellent and 
certainly should make everyone feel 
that the long dormant spirit of the 
University of Massachusetts has at 
last been awakened. I wish it were j 
possible for me to personally con- 
gratulate everyone who had a part in 
the affair. 

Sincerely yours, 
Robert S. Hopkins, Jr. 
Dean of Men 

by running wild over Leicester Jun- 
ior College to the tune of 03-0. 

The team, coached by Red Ball, 
won its first game this year over 
Wesleyan with a score of 8-0. Their 
consecutive winning extending over 
the past few years was then snapped 
when they lost to AIC, 13-0, and 
Springfield College, 7-0. 

Some recognition should be paid to 
the team for the work they have 
done. Until this time, even the box 
score has not been printed so that 
the freshmen could get acquainted 
with the players' names. 

It may be that more publicity for

Will Hold Banquet 

The annual post-football season 
banquet for the Drill Team, Band, 
I Cheer-leaders will be held next Tues- 
day night at 7:15 at the Drake Hotel 
in Amherst. 

Beservations have been made for 
ore* a hundred, reported Ezra Scha- 
bas of the Music Department, in or- 
der to accommodate the three student 
units, together with their directors 
and the directors' wives. 

Busses will be available at the 
Drake after the banquet for those 
who will require transportation home. 
The first banquet of this sort was 
initiated two years ago. Funds which 
were originally to have been used 
for transportation to the Springfield 
game of '47 went instead for a post- 
season get-together for Drill Team 
and Band since they did not attend 
the football game because of rain. 
This affair started the trend for 
the annual banquet. It is expected 
that this tradition will continue 
through future years.

Sportsday Helps 
Athletic Fund 

The University Sportsday held last 
Friday afternoon was the source of 
fun and frolic for well over 200 stu- 
dents and faculty. The Sportsday 
was a joint project of the Varsity M 
Club and Women's Athletic Associa- 
tion and proceeds went for the var- 
sity M club athletic scholarship. 

Volleyball, Softball, touch football 
and archery were among the sports 
being played on the women's athletic 
field, while inside the Drill Hall free 
refreshments were served. 

One of the most unusual aspects of 
the Sportsday was the type of pub- 
licity given the event on campus. The 
"Eat at Joe's" type of cardboard 
signs worn by coeds on the W.A.A. 
board proved to be most successful in 
attracting attention.

U M Scores Early But Jumbos 
Recover to Belt Redmen, 27-7 


Freshman basketball candidates 
are asked to report on Monday, 
November 21st at 5:10 p.m. in 
Room 10 in the Physical Education 

The 1949 football season ended on 
B dismal note last Saturday after- 
noon when the Redmen dropped a 
27-7 decision to Tufts College. The 
traditional season ending contest was 
viewed by more than 5000 fans, who 
saw the Kcknvn take an early lead 
only to surrender it when Tufts be- 
gan to click with it's "non-existent" 
pass attack. 

The Kedmen look the opening kick- 
off and marched 7(1 yards for a score. 
A long pass from Beaumont to An- 
derson highlighted the drive which 
was climaxed by Andy's 22 yard 
sweep into the end zone. He converted 
and Massachusetts led 7-0. For the 
remainder of the first period and the 
early minutes of the second, both 
club's battled on even terms, then 
Bennett, who proved to be the out- 
standing back on the field, started 
t,, spark the Jumbos. After dashing 
jr. yards to the Mass. 40 yard line he 
threw a pass that Mansfield grabbed 
on the 20 and ran the rest of the way 
t,, score. The I'ATD was wide and 
the locals lead was slashed to one 
point. The visitors scored again be- 
fore the half when Bennet bucked 
over from the one yard line. This TD 
was set up when Scheneider blocked 
a kick of Fienman's and Tufts recov- 
ered deep in I'M territory. The half 
Glided with Tufts in the van Kl-7. 

The Jumbos tallied twice in the 
second half and per usual Bennett 
was the big gun. In the third canto he 
passed to Frobert for a score, and 
in the final quarter completed a short 
pass to Mansfield in the end zone to 
close out the fray with the Redmen 
on the short end of the score, for the 
fifth time in eight outings. 

The Redmen threatened several 
times in the last two periods but 
were never able to maintain any 
sustained drives.

Vanishing American Views Miserable Deal From Palefaces 

Over three hundred years ago my 
ancestors, peeking out through the 
bushes, saw a bunch of anemic peas- 
ants staggering off Plymouth Rock. 
At the moment, they just muttered, 
"Give 'em time, they'll die off." 

Boy, were they surprised a year or 
so later when they came back and 
found them still there. The Chief 
was a little peeved, because the class 
of venison was not improving, so he 
went to the palefaces to see what 

Paleface Women Mighty Peaked 

The palefaces weren't too had 
about it. "There's lots for both of us, 
and hows about pitting 0» the feed 
bag with us?" They were celebrating 
some Thanksgiving, though from the 
looks of their women, they had little 
to be thankful for, an ancient scribe 
of the tribe has noted. 

The Chief brought it up at a pow- 
wow. All the young braves yelled,

them add feathers and arm bracelets.

The UM frosh ran wild against

"Red" Ball cleared the bench in this 
the final game of the year for the 
Little Indiana, but no matter who he

This game is by far the finest 
i showing of the UM yearlings for the 
season, who up to this point had had 
an in and out season. 

Leading by four touchdowns at the 
close of the first half, the Little 
Indians kept rolling and piled up as 
high a total of points as is likely 
to be seen around here. This win 
gave the Ballmen a season's mark 
of 2 wins, 2 losses. ,

Frat Round Robin 

All freshmen interested in joining 
a fraternity are invited to Memorial 
Mall next Sunday when they will 
make a tour from there through the 
f rate in it y houses. 

This is an excellent opportunity for 
those interested to meet and become 
acquainted with fraternity men on 
this campus. Because of the tremend- 
ous size of this year's freshman class, 
it is asked that all those whose last 
name begins with A to L come at 
2 p.m. The rest are requested to at- 
tend at B p.m. 

IFC Convo 

Freshman men attending last 
Thursday's convocation, were intro- 
duced to the plan of fraternities on 
this campus. Hal Feinnian, President 
of the Interfraternity council, wel- 
comed the freshmen and discussed 
the activities of fraternities. He em- 
phasized in particular Greek week 
and fraternity contributions to cam- 
pus spirit. 

The principle address was delivered 
by Profeaeor Richard ColweU of the 
Economic! department. After out- 
lining reasons for the growth of 
Fraternities, lie discussed the ideals, 
influences on character development, 
and their contribution to group or- 

Hank Thompson, vice-president of 
the IF council, closed the program by 
explaining the mechanics of rushing. 

The council was well rewarded for 
its efforts by the larpe turnout of 
freshmen present for the occasion. 



Dean Robert S. Hopkins reported 
last week that he has received a 
number of comments from the resi- 
dents of North Pleasant Street and 
Lincoln Avenue concerning the noise 
of the traffic on the two streets. 

In a statement to the Collegian, 
Dean Hopkins pointed out that tht 
rush at 8 a.m., 12 noon and ."> in the 
afternoon "is frequently accompa- 
nied by excessive hornblowing which 
can be very trying to anyone within 

He concluded with the request that 
all those who drive to work "get up 
early enough to make their ci^ht 
o'clocks on time without speeding 
and to take it easy on the way home. 
This makes for less noise, fewer 
jangled nerves, and a much healthier 
all-around atmosphere."

Tomorrow night at the Amherst College Gym the annual 
Military Ball will take place, and it is no military secret that Duke 
Ellington will supply the music. Highlight of the evening will be 
the naming of the Honorary Colonel, a girl to be chosen from 
among five finalists selected by the Cadets. 

Too often, possibly, it has been reiterated that this will be the 

finest formal presented as it univer- 
^ajflp^Bj 8 >ty function. Certainly, however, 
H the re is no more convenient and suit- 
.*V^ : '"le a dancehall in this area. Just as 
certain is it, that Duke KIHngton 

t brings the finest band ever secured 
for a campus ball, to "serenade" what 
•-will be the largest gnthering at a 
^school dance. 

All this and more too will make 
tomorrow night an evening to re- 
member for all those attending. Ably 
assisted by Major Harley D. Kahrud 
of the Department, the K. O. T. C. 
Cadets have made possible a big mo- 
ment in the history of the school. As

gress and World Government," Mr. 
Furcolo will give a first hand account 
of the hearings which have taken 
place thus far in Congress on the 
proposal of a World Government Re- 
solution. He will also outline the pos- 
sible course the proposal may follow 
in the next session. 

The speaker was one of the few 
candidates in the 1948 election who 
took a positive stand on the issue of 
World Government and has since car- 
ried out his campaign promises hy 
becoming one of the original sponsors 
of the present proposal.

"If the scenery falls down in the 
middle of the show, the cast cant 
improve on the performance." Prof. 
Arthur Niedeck wasn't being pessi- 
mistic at the "Midsummer Night's 
Dream" rehearsal Tuesday night; 
this was merely his method of let- 
ting the cast know that from there 
on in everyone connected with the 
play would function only as a team 
member. Time for actual performance 
of "The Dream" was fast approach- 
ing and cast, crew, and director alike 
were feeling the usual butterflies-in- 
the-stomach that go with every stage 
production, amateur or professional. 

We had been very anxious to at- 
tend this rehearsal of "The Dream", 
since we had never before seen a 
Shakespearian play in actual pro- 
duction. We were, therefore, quite 
prepared to be impressed — and the 
cast didn't disappoint us.

Plans for Carnival 
Being Formulated 

Since early October, room 6 in the 
Physical Education Building has 
housed meetings of the 12 committee 
chairman engaged in promoting Win- 
ter Carnival 1950, it was announced 
this week by Barbara Kinghorn, gen- 
eral chairman of this year's Carni- 

Assisted by co-chairmen Bruce 
Fletcher and Bob Jackson, Miss King- 
horn has held weekly committee 
meetings at which plans were dis- 
cussed to make Winter Carnival 1950 
the biggest social event of the year, 
and the biggest Carnival in univer- 
sity history*. 

The week of Feb. 11-18 will pre- 
sent seven days of fun and merri- 
ment. Highlights of the Carnival this 
year will be skiing events, snow- 
sculpture contests, a hockey game, a 
basketball game, a fashion show, and 
a special swimming performance by 
the Naiads water ballet group. 

Music will be furnished by one of 
the nation's top bands, the name to

•II the top executives at Harvard decide they want a good football team 
and the alumni and undergraduates become sufficiently interested in foot- 
hall to eo-opcratc. then Harvard will have better football teams. With the 
substitution of the words "University of Massachusetts" in place of "Harv- 
ard" the above quote from a Boston Herald editorial states the case of this 
school QBatC adequately. 

Three weeks ago the CM wrapped up a dismal football season, with 
a record of I wins. B losses, and this brought the three year record 1947- 
1949 to I wins, 13 losses and 2 ties. In basketball during the past three sea- 
sons the I'M record is something like 12 wins, 38 losses. We haven't looked 
up the totals in baseball, track or swimming, but these teams fared little 
better over the same period. The results in years previous are of no interest 
here; the past three years point the obvious fact that university teams are 
going downhill in a hurrv and there is no immediate promise that they will 
start climbing back up again. They will never start that climb until some 
positive action is taken. 

The time for that action to begin is now before we forget the past foot- 
ball season, before *m- let another year go by. Even starting right now, and 
with the l>est of success, it would be three or more years before the teams 
might h« put back on a winning basis. We need winning teams as a matter 
of school pride; we need particularly, a winning football team, because that's 
the sport which pays the freight for the rest of the sports program. 

FHHing a winning team is essentially a matter of gathering together 
outstanding athletes from high schools; coaching is important but hiring 
a coach is a simple matter compared to that of finding the players and 
bringing them to this school. The latter is the job which requires the co- 
operation mentioned in the editorial, the cooperation of the administration, 
the alumni, and the undergraduates. If enough interest is shown by the 
three groups, as it should be, we can better the athletic situation here. 

There is ■ ureal deal of work to be done. But just for a start, we ask 
the students to consider the problem of accumulating money for the sanc- 
tioned athletic scholarship fund. Money can be raised by every house and 
dormitory, and other organizations on campus. A series of dances would 
help. That's just a small start but its better than waiting for next year and 
the year afte r that. _

Operetta Guild Finance 

Dear Editor: 

It was the policy at Devens to ad- 
mit all students free to all operatic 
productions since the scenery and 
costumes were provided by the state 
and there were no overhead costs 

Isn't the same policy in effect on 
this campus? 

If so, why do the students have to 
pay "Broadway Prices" to see oper- 
atic productions? What are our stu- 
dent activities tickets for anyway? I 
think it is about time they stopped 
fleecing the students! If they do have 
to charge admission, at least make a 
nominal price. 

Yours truly, 
Robert Spang, ">2

Mr. Anthony Zaitz, instructor in 
English and Speech will probably 
breathe a sigh of relief and say, '"It 
can't happen again." 

For it was last summer during an 
eight-week course in public speaking 
that "Tony" pinch-hit as a fireman, 
carpenter, doctor, and student. It 
seems that since housing accommo- 


Zaitz household. They had rental M 
oil stove to cook on, and one aft^. 
noon several flaming jets of fire cats. 
pulted from the stove, setting fire to 
the canvas of the tent and igniti 
Mrs. Zaitz's hair and dress. 

Acting instantly, Mr. Zaitz seizej 
a cover and smothered the flames « 
his spouse's hair and ripped her dwJ 
off — probably .saving her life in 
process. He then carried her out o 
the tent, rescued son Larry, and 
turned to fling the flaming stove o 
before it could destroy the home com, 
pletely. After recovering from t 
episode, the Zaitzs took a quick 
back at the summer's punishment 
fled Wisconsin. 

Professional Musician 
Mr. Zaitz is a native of Chelse 
graduating in the class of '.'.4. | 
received a scholarship to enter t 
music school at Boston Univtr>:. 
but declined it. Instead he toured :h,

four years later. While in Eflfbl

Need For A Column 

Dear Editor: 

I would like to congratulate RttSS 
Broude on his column about athletics 
at our university: it has been writ- 
ten with intelligence and perception. 

But since a university is <o>- 
was?) considered to be concerne 1 
primarily with learning, intelligent 
discussion, and criticism, I think that 
the Collegian might raise the quality 
and prestige of the university as well 
as itself by allotting space for a col- 
umn of more general university in- 

The column might be written by 
one or a group of members of the 
student body and the faculty inter- 
ested in arousing an enthusiastic, ef- 
fective realization of the university 
problems through responsible, con- 
structive criticism of matters curric- 
ular and extra-curricular. 

The columnists would seek the 
ideas and opinions of students and 
faculty on various subjects; on the 
basis of their findings they would

each newcomer to the campus com- 
munity was forced to live in a tent — 
which he had to construct himself.

make generalizations, and upon these 
generalizations they would base sug- 
gestions for university improvement. 
Officials of the university might he 
interviewed, and some of their prob- 
lems set before us, so that we might 
all know how to help overcome these 
problems, or at least know why ere 
must bear with them. 

The columnists would inform us of 
developments on and off campus, such 
as "general education," which has 
changed many colleges in the last de 
cade. Now the administration of our 
University is considering initiating a 
plan of "general education," while 
many students here are ignorant of 
the meaning, purpose, and effects of 
such a plan. 

We must not pre-suppose that the 
students and faculty are so irrespon- 
sible, and so apathetic as to make a 
column concerning serious matters 
unfeasible and unprofitable. Such a 
column as I have described would be 
a long overdue innovation which 
might at least help us to a "respon- 
sible Press."

We do not believe there ft a ne- 
cessity to establish a "column" to 
cover the material Mr. Frankel men- 
tions. However ice do see the need 
to devote more of our news and fea-

as "general education" and improve- 
ments for the school, and we thank

Basketball Squad Cut to 16; 
Ball Names Probable Starters 


The varsity swimming team opens 

with Bowdoin on Dec. 10, but as yet 

there is a dearth of swimming can- 

I didates. All interested should contact 

Coach Rogers as soon as possible. 

Berkshire "B" Cops I M Crown; 
Wallops Frat Champs, 27-13] 


In preparation for the Northeastern 
opener at the Cage on December 10, 
Red Ball has trimmed his basketball 
squad to 16 men, and named aB prob- 
able starters Ray Gagnon, center; 
Bob Johnston and Alex Norsky, 
guards; and Bill Prevey and Ed Mc- 
Cauley, forwards. 

Intensive practice the past three 
weeks, with three scrimmages against 
Amherst and one against AIC, has 
put the practice schedule ahead of 
last year by a full week and better 
prepared the Redmen to meet the 
Huskies, who will bo minus the serv- 
ices of Blair and "Inga" Walsh, and 
their last year's freshman star who 

Remaining on the squad following 
the final cut, besides those named 
above, are: Art Barrett (F), Paul 
Hourdeau (P), Sam Couture (F), 
Dick Erlandson (C), Phil Goldman 
(G), Rav Gunn (F), Pete Misakian 
(C or F), Hal Ostman (G), Bill 
Schriner (G), "Tim" Tyler (G). and 
Dick Vanasse (C). 

Four practice sessions this week 
and two scrimmages will provide 
much additional smoothing of the 
varsity's line of attack. Saturday the 
Ballmen will travel to New Britain 
for a scrimmage, and last Tuesday 
the quintet scrimmaged the North- 
ampton Celtics, which boast such 
names as Ed McGrath (of last year's 
UM varsity); Curran, of Holy Cross; 
Grennert of NYU (and now coaching 
St. Anselms); and "Spud" Shapiro, 
captain of Tutfs' Five last year. 

Practice sessions in the Cage, open 
to the student body, will be at 3:30 
today and at 4:00 p.m. tomorrow. Al- 
though notice of next week's practice 
sessions had not been released at 
publication time, students interested 
can probably catch some of the var- 
sity on the court any afternoon. In 
addition, "Red" Ball hopes to get in 
one more scrimmage next week, 
probably about Wednesday. 

Bill Looney, last year's Captain is 
assisting Earl Lorden with the Fresh- 
man quintet, while Dick Lee, himself 
a star on the 1948 five, is assisting 
"Red" Ball.

Quintet Scrimmages 
Northampton Celtics 

The '49 edition of the UM basket- 
ball team went into action last Tues- 
day with an informal scrimmage 
against the Northampton Celtics, a 
newly formed semi-pro team. Coast- 
ing on a ten point lead in the first 
half of the scrimmage, the UM 
starters had a definite edge on the 
Celtics, and kept their offense well 
bottled up, until the second and third 
Redmen fives went on the court. 

Coach Ball gave his entire squad 
a workout, sending the first five to 
tlie showers after the half. McCauley 
and Norskey started at guard, for 
the lledmen, with Prevey and Gagnon 
ami Johnston in the forecourt. 

Final score found the Celtics out 
in front, unofficially, 04-52 but the 
Northampton five, lead by Spud Sha- 
piro and "Stix" McGrath, a member 
of last year's UM five, trailed by

mittee now being formed 

We have been presented with an 
idea that is sound, feasible and prac- 
tical. In the past it has been tradi- 
tional for each class to present to the 
school something of educational, es- 
thetic or practical value. The class 
gift as suggested by a very interested 
group definitely fits these catagories 

Thus it would be of great value 
for the Class Gift Committee, headed 
by "Strut" Struzziero to pay care- 
ful heed to the proposal. 

With the money in the senior class 
treasury which will be alloted to a 
I class gift, plus additional contribu- 
tions of about one dollar from each 
senior, it would be possible to pro- 
vide scholarships for person's who 
ishow educational and athletic pro-

the scholarships are ably adminis- 
tered, which could be done by a com- 
mittee composed of Mr. McGuirk,

Top Offensive Threat for Redmen

Feb. 25 TC4A Championship Meet 

Marty Anderson of Palmer was the 
outstanding offensive ball player at 
the University of Massachusetts this 
fall, according to the final computa- 
tion of statistics, released last week. 
Anderson, who started all Maroon 
and White games at wingback, led 
in scoring, pass receiving and had the 
best rushing average of the Redmen 
backs. Hal Feinman of Brighton, 
running from fullback, led in total 
yardage gained, taking the ball for 
888 yards in 80 rushes. 

Russ "Beavah" Beaumont turned in 
the best passing performance for the 
Redmen. Beaumont completed 29 pas- 
ses in 72 attempts for a total gain 
of 510 yards. Five touchdown passes 
were in this total, and 7 intercep- 
tions were chalked up against the 
Greenfield junior. This passing pro- 
ficiency brought Beaumont the lead 

Marty Anderson and Bill Looney 
were the chief targets for the UM 
aerials. Anderson's margin in this de- 
partment was slight, 190 yards to 
Looney's 188. Anderson caught more 
short passes to bring his total up. 
He was on the receiving end 14 
times, compared to Looney's 8. Mar- 
ty nabbed three t.d. passes, Looney 

The punting leadership went, of 
course, to Don Sisson, who special- 
ized in this performance for the Red- 
men. Don went in to punt 35 times, 
averaging 34 yards per kick. Two 
of Sisson's punts were blocked. 

Scoring was dominated by Ander- 
son and Feinman, with Andy ac- 
counting for 32 points, 5 via touch- 
down lanes and 2 conversions. Fein- 
man scored four times for 24 points.

Roister Doisters Make Own Costumes 
With Help of Many Faculty Wives 

by Bing Bong 

"What time is my next fitting, please?" ... "I can't wear 
this on the. stage — they'll all laugh at me!" . . . "Hey, watch out! 
Those pins are sharp!" . . . "Gee, this isn't bad at all!" If you 
should venture into the Crafts Room at Skinner Hall, perhaps 
these comments would be the only noise you would hear, above 

the whir of sewing machines, of 

course. Fitting? . . .Stage? . . .pins? 
Maybe you, like most people, are cu- 
rious to know what's happening. 

And if you should see Dottie Lin-

Make Own Costumes 

There's a lot more to putting on 
■ play than meets the eye of an au- 
dience. The appearance of the actors 
and actresses is very important. It's 
so easy to order costumes that fit. 
But never let it be said that the 
Roister Doisters are lazy, for the 
umes for "A Midsummer Night's 
Dream" are being made by a few- 
hard-working girls in the organisa- 
tion and by many women who are 
willingly lending a hand. 

Carol Heady and Barbara Kait- 
itt, both seniors, are co-chai> men of 
the costume committee. Working 
with them under their efficient super- 
vision are Marie Jacob, Polly Har- 
covitz, Joy White, Marge Rice, Nina

Night's Dream" is the latest cog in a long lino of productions dating back to 1914, when "Comedy 
of Errors" was produced with an all-male cast. 

In an informal talk with a Collegian reporter, Prof. Rand reminisced about the old Shake- 

eostumes piogncastiS and it is on its of thp country in the finals, the eoun- 
final lap now there are other stu- I try is divided into eight zones, with

Thanks to . . . 

The Roister Doisters are especially 
.::ateful to Mrs. Robert I>. Hawley, 
Mrs. R. A. Van Meter, Mrs. Charies 
D-.iKois, and Mrs. Arthur Niedeck 
for the many numerous hours they 
are devoting to the sewing of the 
costumes. Mrs. DuBois and Mrs. 
N'iedeck are the advisors to the 
f?roup, and under their watchful 
eyes, all is progressing smoothly. 

To Dr. Mitchell of the Home Ec- 
onomics Department, who has made 
I>08sible the use of the Crafts Room 
at Skinner Hall, the Roister Doisters 
»-xpre88 their appreciation. There are 
no specially designated rooms for the 
"iganization to use. 

All of this hard work is just one 
part of the whole "A Midsummer 
Night's Dream" to be presented on 
December 8, y, 10, at Bowker Audi- 
torium. Tickets are now on sale at 
the U-Store. So buy yours early. Af- 
ter all, you do want the best seats in 
the house, don't you? 

Editors Plan Year 
Book, Shorthorn 

Appointments to the editorial staff 
the Shorthorn, the Stockbridge 
yarbook, were made at the meeting 
n f the magazine's board last week. 

Jerry McCarthy was chosen Edi- 
tor; Red Drake, Assistant Editor; 
Stanley Hollis, Secretary; and 
George Fellows, Business Manager. 

The initial plans for the book are 
iiiderway. Primary work is to have 
individual pictures taken, and ap- 
pointments have been made at Kins- 
man's studio. Times for appointments 
are posted on the bulletin boards in 
Rockbridge Hall, French Hall, and 
in the Shorthorn office, Room 218, 
Stockbridge. The editors have re- 
quested that the students observe the 
picture schedule as closely as class 
schedules permit. 

two pairs from each zone qualifying 
for the finals. 

The Intercollegiate Bridge Tourna- 
ment Committee, which supports the 
event so that there is no cost to the 
competing colleges or the players, is 
a group of college alumni and offi- 
cials interested in developing Con- 
tract Bridge as an in terc ol legiate 
sport in which men and women can 
compete on an equal basis. 

Ashley to Speak 
To Chem Club 

The Chemistry Club will hold its 
monthly meeting next Wednesday in 
Goessmann Auditorium at 7:30 p.m. 
In addition to the regular business 
meeting, the club will feature as its 
guest speaker Mr. Samuel E. Q. Ash- 
ley, Director of the Analytical Section 
of the General Electric Laboratory in 

Mr. Ashley is one of a series of 
speakers who will highlight the 
monthly meetings. He is the author 
of several articles on Spectrophotom- 
etry and Analytical Chemistry. 

An active member of several chemi- 
cal associations, Mr. Ashley is on the 
A.C.S. Committee on Analytical Re- 
agents and also the Committee on the 
Purity of Chemical Products of the 
National Research Council, Division 
of Chemistry, and Chemical Technol- 

The author will discuss aspects of 
work in his own laboratory to illus- 
trate the interest of the analytic 
chemist in electrical industry in many 
kinds of materials and the applica- 
tions of spectrophotometric, micro- 
scopic, spectroscopic X-ray, and other 
classical techniques. 

The important decision which the 
analytic chemist must make is in the 
kinds of data which he can give his 
chemical, metallurgical, or physical 
colleagues. Mr. Ashley will illustrate 
this by example. 

ROISTER DOISTERS— Discussing staging problems involved in the 
forthcoming Roister Doister play, Midsummer Night's Dream, are Paul 
Dextrader, Mario Bruni, and Richard Rochette. An unusual feature of 
this play will be interpretive dancing by the Modern Dance Club. The 
play will run Dec. 7 through 10. Photo by Tague 

"Folies" Slated for Jan. 6 and 7, 
To Be More Elaborate Than Last Year 

by Esmerelda 

Paris wakes up and smiles in Drill 
Hall, January 6 and 7, when the 
French "Folies" will be presented for 
the second consecutive year. Accord- 
ing to the chairmen, the show this 
year promises to be much more elab- 
orate than last, with more big pro 
duction numbers and more costuming. 
Wheels to be Present 

Among the guests of honor for 
the performance will be the French 
counsel from Boston and his wife, 
Mr. and Mrs. Albert Chambon, and 
vice-counsel and his wife, Mr. and 
Mrs. Montalenbert. Mr. Claude Bour- 
cier, head of Middlebury 's French 
School will also be present. 

Acts highlighting the show will in- 
clude an eighteenth century fashion 
show, chapeaued by Anatole of Paris, 
featuring Mary Lowry. Another, 
Paris Wakes Up and Smiles, with 
Mrs. Marjorie Snow singing, depicts 
the city waking to its night life as 
the sun goes down. A third act takes 
place in a French chateau, where a 
rich girl sneaks her peasant lover in 
to a high class can-can show. 

This year, a stage will be used at 
the south end of the Drill Hall, with 
four sets made for the production. 
The first, which will be for a dream 
sequence, has a gold backdrop with 
dark blue star-littered curtains. The 
second shows Rue Pigalle, center of 
Paris' Bohemian district, where any- 
thing can happen and usually does. 
The can-can will be centered in a 
chateau background, and the last is 
a combination of the chateau and 
dream sequence. 

Cabaret Style 

Again this year the floor will be 
set in cafe bistro style, tables set 
with red-checked tablecloths, and 
"French" waitresses selling refresh- 
ments from table to table. Gypsy for- 
tune tellers will also travel through 
the audience, reading palms, faces, 
and lumps on the head. 

Music by Felix will be featured. 
The show will be directed by Morris 

Ankele.s and Mary Lowry under the 
auspices of the French House. Doctor 
Katherine Clark is faculty adviser. 

Committee chairmen are as fol- 
lows: Production munager, Laura 
Levine; choreography. Bob Poland; 
lights, Wid Hart and Bob Lawrence; 
Stage manager, l'aul Dextrader; 
scenery, Bob Boland and Paul Dex- 
trader; makeup, Hank Pierce and 
Pauline Beauvais; business manager, 
Phyllis Silin; tickets and house, Alice 
Chore banian; costumes, Shirley Saph- 
erstein; properties, Jean Rapoza. 

The stage will be Viilt by Mr. 
Randolph. Those from the French 
House working in conjunction with 
them are President Joan Stern, and 
Secretary Yvette Monette. 

Registration for Spring 
Semester Begins Monday 

The following notice was re- 
ceived from the Registrar's Office 
this week: 

"Beginning on December 5 and 
continuing through January 7, all 
upperclass students (sophomores, 
juniors, and seniors) must report 
to their major advisers for the 
purpose of selecting their courses 
for the second semester of the 
current school year." 

Assistant Registrar Donald 
(.adigan stated that pre-registra- 
tion this semester will take care 
of the largest group ever to go 
through the process in the history 
of the university. A total of 2825 
students are scheduled to register 
beginning next Monday. Of this 
number, there are 2336 men and 
489 women. 

With enrollment now at its peak 
and with the unusually large sen- 
ior class, this record total will not 
be reached again for several 
years, at least. 

spear plays he'd done with Roister 

'Twelfth Night" Featured Burps 

"Twelfth Night" in UJ-JO, saw Dr. 
Maxwell (ioldberg as Sir Toby Belch. 
The play was put on in (Jrinnell 
Arena, (now reserved only for the 
ham in the Little International), on 
what was nearly as possible a repro- 
duction of an Elizabethan stage. In 
the audience were gallants in cos- 
tumes who made cracks at the play- 
ers. Dr. Goldberg mentioned trading 
quips with Professor Prince as he 
(Sir Toby) went "burping through 
the arena". 

Macbeth, boasted Dennis Michael 
Crowley. President of the Alumni 
Association as Macbeth, Prof. "I'at 
English's" daughter u his lady, and 
the football team as the opposing 
armies. (I hesitate to ask whether 
that was the first victorious battle 
of the season.) The production had a 
very large cast, and 20 Set changes. 

Ravine Features Culture 

Roister Doisters then went down 
the Ravine for "As You Like It". 
Mr. Rand stated that at the time 
there was no stink to combat. Bleach- 
ers were built on the south side. 
Early scenes were played in a little 
formal garden in front of the bleach- 
ers; then the cast went over a rustic 
bridge to the North end for the 
Forest of Arden. 

To make the forest more realistic, 
sheep were turned loose to run among 
the trees. On the first night, there 
was a thunderstorm, so they all 
repaired to Bowker, but the second 
night came off perfectly. 

"Othello", the next Shakespearean 
play, was notable for the fact that 
the Iago and Othello leads were in- 
terchangeable. Each principal took 
the name role for a night, resulting 
in two surprisingly different pei- 

"LLL" Features Man 
Hjr Edelstein was a great success 
and practically the only man in 
"Love's Labours Lost", produced dur- 
ing the war years. The shortage of 
men caused most of the roles to be 
played by women. 

This last, "Midsummer Night's 
Dream", is perhaps one of the best- 
known of Shakespeare's plays. The 
"Dream" has been produced in Holly- 
wood with Olivia DeHavilland as 
Hermia, Mickey Rooney as Puck, and 
James Cagney as the irrepressible 
Nick Bottom.

The Animal Husbandry Club le-ld 
its semi-monthly meeting on Novem-

Musical Rated Highly by Audiences; 
Plays to Full House Last Two Nights 


Compliment! go to the Operetta 

Guild for its successful production of 

(Jul Crazy," the Gershwin musical, 

staged for four days the week prior 

i Thanksgiving. 

While the Wednesday and Thurs- 
day performances were attended by 
crowds considerably less than the ca- 
pacity of Bowker Auditorium, on 
Friday and Saturday the hall was 
filled to the last seat by enthusiastic 
students, faculty members, and many 
from other colleges in the vicinity. A 
number of townspeople from Am- 

herst also attended. 

With the exception of some scenery 
which was possessed to fall at the 
wrong time on the first two nights, 
everything went smoothly. Especially 
commendable for their performances 
were Bob Boland for his excellent 
dance interpretations, Bill Estes, who 
played the comic to perfection, ami 
Gil Nadeau, another comedian, was 
equally good. Ed Purrington and 
Lorna Wildon sang the lead rolts 
with a poise and warmth which met 
with great approval. 

Holidays . . .

yam for the entire week. 

"Messiah" is Tradition 

The idea of putting the "Messiah" 
on around Christmas time was con- 
ceived some time ago but was con- 
tinued over the past few years. This 
year, again presented by the Uni- 
versity Chorus, the presentation will 
nark the continuance of Handel's 

The Chowder and Marching Soci- 
ety, which has recently become as- 
■ H-iated with the Music Guild, will 
pre its first performance at the 
I'niversity during the "Holidays". 

The group, now under the sponsor- 
ship of the Inter-Fraternity council, 
>riginated at Devens under the direc- 
of John Glowacki. At the Fort 
gave many concerts over WLAW 
Lawrence and became a recognised 
nusical group. Since they have come 
to the university they have expanded 
to a total of sixty men. 

The "four college" octets will be 

mother of the main events planned. 

Mt. Holyoke, Smith, Amherst and the 

University of Massachusetts have ar- 

uiged a program in which an octet 

inn each of the aforementioned col- 

I will perform. The octet from 

he university will be the talented 


All of the fine programs planned 
for the "Holidays" cannot be individ- 
lally written. However, such musical 
•ionizations as the chorale, dance 
•and and others need no introduction. 

This year's "Holidays of Music" is 
expected to surpass the 1948 program.

Senate to Seek Remedy for Trouble 
In Line at Draper; 3 Members Resign 


The weekly meeting of the Student 
Benito took place lust Tuesday night 
in the Old Chapel Auditorium at 7:(mi 
p.m., the main topic of discussion be- 
ing the difficulties in the waiting 
lines at Draper Dining Hall. 

President Alden Howard stressed 

the importance of this problem, stat- 
ing that at the beginning of the 
semester the freshmen girls seemed 
to be at fault, but that now everyone 
who dines there is participating in 
clu>ating others in the lines. Mr. How- 
ard then called for suggestions which 
might remedy the confusion which 
presents itself daily. 

Suggestions of strong editorials 
in the Collegian and also of warning 
posters were given, but the most po- 
tential idea seemed to be the taking 
of offenders' names and turning them 
in to the Dean's office. It was decided 
that all students will be told of this 
system before it goes into effect. 

There were three resignations from 
members of the senate: Joseph Grif- 

fen (Berkshire), John Benoit (Fra- 
ternity), and Carol Hinds (Abbey). 

Thelma Litsky requested a review 
of the regulations and violations con- 
cerning all students on campus. 

President Howard announced that 
the Sophomore class will be in charge 
of the Christmas Carols this year. 
The appropriations for this affair, 
which cover such expenses as Christ- 
mas lights, refreshments, etc., is giv- 
en by the Senate. 

The next two meetings of the Sen- 
ate will take place upstairs in M.m 
Hall due to the fact that the Music 
Guild will use the Old Chapel for 
their gatherings.

Mili Ball . . . 

Continued from page 1 
These Cadets have made possible 

what promises to be the finest for- 
mal in the history of the school. 

Having learned that the king of 
the Termite Empire would address 
his subjects last Monday, I trudged 
over to Mem Hall at 6:30 a.m. to 
cover the rarest of all events in the 
termite colony. 

I had surreptitiously picked the 
pocket of Janitor Wally Feidman the 
night before as he was leaving Mem 
Hall, to spare myself the exertion of 
climbing through windows. I sneaked 
down the back stairs, cautiously look- 
ing for possible meeting places. As I 
peeked through the keyhole of one 
of the doors, what should I see but 
hundreds of ant-like termites swarm- 
ing up onto the ping-pong table to 
take their seats. 

King Isoptera, standing on the 
dais (formed by the net) and flanked 
by prominent government officials, 
impatiently watched his subjects as- 
semble. It was a slow procedure — 
the soldiers and workers, all of whom 
are blind, had to be guided to their 
designated places. Announcements 
over megaphones requested that the 
seating take place as speedily as 
possible: there was not much time 
left before Feidman would be coming 

Power in Peri! 

At exactly 7:00, King Isoptera de- 
livered his message to the people: 

"Serious conditions within the 
Kingdom of the Termites have im- 
pelled me to call this emergency 
meeting. There is need for quick ac- 
tion on your part to solve the problem 
on hand. 

By Joe Kenmore 

"The core of the problem lies in the 

colony's loss of power. Three years 
ag°> your ancestors had completely 
inhabited the east wall of this same 
building. As you know, Feidman could 
not break through their defenses. 

"The next fall, Feidman waged a 
war of annihilation. After one week 
of staunch resistance to disinfectant 
attacks, the military commanders of 
our nation used brilliant strategy to 
remove the survivors under cover of 
darkness to the last three bowling 
alleys and the wall near the ping- 
pong table. 

Horrible Weapon 

"Lacer on, Feidman discovered both 
of our hatches and, against the rules 
of international warfare, used an in- 
vention far worse than the atomic 
bomb. Top-flight scientists can now 
explain the mechanism of that huge 
sack-like weapon, and our spies have 
learned that this machine is the 
dreaded vacuum cleaner. Its victims 
were dumped into disinfectant. De- 
spite this loss last Christmas, we 
saved two of the three alleys. 

"This year we have made more 
progress than at any other time in 
history. The July and August hatch 
was purposely timed to avoid Feid- 
man and to give the nation a strong 

"Now, however, our enemy has 
noticed the infection of the wood 
along the wall, so Parliament has 
voted that we move to another local- 
ity. Survival will be facilitated by 
recent advances in medicine. Dentists 

hired by the government have syn- 
thesized the compound 'gnawlong' 
which increases durability of teeth 
Doctors have ready for use a drug 
capable of prolonging life by at lead 
ten months. 

Must Foil Feidman 

"Chemists are now working on a 
substance strong enough to neutralize 
Feldmun's disinfectants. Through the 
use of these discoveries, we can cause 
more damage. Investigation by the 
secret service bureau has revealed 
that, lacking funds, Feidman cannot 
finance destructive measures for long. 
We can increase our activity to such 
a point that he will be helpless. 

"This plan represents my belief 
that the members of this colony can 
and should save their society and 
then go on to advance it. Let us al- 
ways remember that 'The termite.- 
are the animals that can't be licked'." 

Tumultuous applause followed the 
address, but I left for breakfast. All 
the way to the diner, my conscience 
kept telling me I should report the 
menacing activity of the termites to 
Wally, but then I would be incrimi- 
nating myself. Oh, well, the termites 
and King Isoptera will serve as an 
assignment next year for some eager, 
unsuspecting reporter.

Carnival Ball Again To Feature 
Popular Orchestra of Johnny Long 

For the first time in the history 
of the University, a name band will 
play a repeat engagement at a ma- 
jor formal when Johnny Long and his 
orchestra appear at the Winter Car- 
nival Ball on February 17. Announce- 
ment that the Long band had been 
selected to provide music for the 
Carnival Ball again this year was 
made Tuesday by Fran Lucier, co- 
chairman of the Ball Committee. 

Lucier stated that the orchestra 
had met with such approval in its in- 
itial appearance on campus last year 
that it 


The Modern Dame Club and the 
various musical organizations on 
campus have aided Prof. Arthur Nie- 
deck in the planning and staging of 
the play. In addition, faculty wives 
and members of the Home Economic*! 
Department have advised and assisted 

the costume committee haadad by 
Carol Heady. 

The sets for "The Dream" are im- 
pressionistic, and are entirely stu- 
dent designed and built. Hob Boland 
is responsible for the designing of 
th< scenery, ai.d actual construction 
was done by the scenery committee 
under Hob Decareau. 

The Shakespearean comedy has 

been performed by student groups in 
many college*, and [l generally very 
well received. The story center;- 
around the love affair of Hermia, 
played by Dottie Lipnick, and Ly 
sander, played by Henry I'eirce. Hi r 
mia loves Lysander. but her father 
(Bert N'arbis) has promised her to 
another young man, Demetrius, 
played by Charles I' Complicn- 
'tions result whin Hermia and Ly- 
sander attempt to run away together 
and are followed by Demetrius and 
Helena (Edith Jones), a young lady 
who openly loves Demetrius.

A second thread to the plot con- 
cerns the fairy queen Titania (Sylvia

group for another dance. In addi- 
tion to satisfying popular demand, 
it is hoped that the Long engage- 
ment here will be a step toward 
greater publicity for the entire week 
of Winter Carnival events. 

Lucier also stated thai this was 
the first time a major formal has 
ever been scheduled on campus, and 
the first time that any dance has been 
planned for the Cage. More than 
adequate dancing space has bftM 
promised the couples attending the 
event, and it is hoped that the Cage 
will prove popular as a site for fu- 
ture campus dances.

Dear Sir: 

In a partial answer to your edi- 
torial of last week concerning the 
possibility of improving the stand- 
ards of our athletic teams at the 
University, the members of Lambda 
Chi Alpha voted last night to donate 
all proceeds from their "coke" and 
cigarette machines to the fund for 
athletic scholarships. We feel that 
this move is a step in the right di- 
rection and hope that we will be 
joined in it by our fellow fraternity 
men and women as well as by those 
students who reside in dormitories. 

This particular method of financing 
scholarships is not original. It has 
been used with tremendous success by- 
one of our Yankee Conference rivals. 
The college referred to relies almost 
entirely on this source of revenue for 
attracting and aiding worthy ath- 

With the alumni showing increased 
interest in our inter-collegiate ath- 
letics, it is our duty as undergradu- 
ates to demonstrate that we have an 
equally aroused interest, and per- 
haps this proposal may serve that

Dear Editor: 

While enthusiastically thumping 
the tub in column and editorial for 
the athletic scholarship fund last 
week, the Collegian lost sight of the 
facts and made what we believe is 
a very erroneous implication. In cit- 
ing the need for winning teams, the 
Collegian implied that an improve- 
ment in manpower is the most im- 
portant part of the solution. In ef- 
fect the University's athletes (espec- 
ially the football players) were 
grossly insulted. 

The team fielded by the U of M 
had a great deal of talent. It had 
spirit and its members were well 

A good coach can take a fair team 
and make a winner out of it; a poor 
coach cannot win even with a good 
team. He needs extraordinary mate- 
rial to have a successful season. Let 
us not pass off this matter of coach- 
ing so lightly. The boys who went

plication that they were not up to

school athletes cominy to this school. 
That we believe is a well-founded 
opinion. To bring such athletes here, 
we need an alumni group to scout 
and to interest them in Oie UM. In 
the present competitive market for 
athletes, it is necessary in a great 
number of cases to offer scholar- 
ships. As one MNM of obtaining the 
money for such scholarships, we sug- 
gested contributions from the stu- 
dent body. Interesting the students in 
this endeavor was the particular aim 
\of last week's editorial, and tu'o let- 
ters on this page show that there is 
an interest. We hope to see more of 

We wish to state that we did not 
intend, nor did we deliver "a gross 
insult" to the university's athletes. 
We were simply reiterating for 
greater etnphasis and greater atten- 
tion the same opinions evidenced by 
the athletes themseh'es. The varsity 
"M" club, which represents the ath- 
letes, has been a leader in recogniz- 
ing the need for scholarships. It has 
worked to establish a fund and with 
sonic success: the dance at I trill Hall 
tomorrow night is its latest effort. 

The writers' reference to "passi)ig 
off the coacJiing situation lightly" 
implies an analysis of the past foot- 
ball season, which we did not attemftt 
to give. Such a iwst-mortem at best 
•ould have been inexpert, ami would 
>t hai'e contributed to the partial- 
r purpose of the editorial a* it was 
'<ted above. 

We are cognizant of the work 
rned in by the football squad thi« 
fall, and we have shown full appre- 
ciati<ni of its efforts in several edito- 
rials, in feature columns and in the 
accounts ot the games. 
Note : Russ Broude asks that the 
above comment also be accepted as 
I an answer from his column. 


Dear Editor: 

In your editorial of last week con- 
cerning the athletic scholarship fund, 
you mentioned that money could be 
raised by every house and dorm on 
campus. Your proposal is one of the 
best suggestions in a long time. It 
is a very practical idea since it would 
allow everyone to contribute. 

In addition, there is no reason that 
such a plan be unsuccessful. Each 
student, no matter how poor, could 
give at least a quarter — many could 
contribute more. I doubt that any 
student would seriously miss the five 
Cokes or some such thing that the 
quarter might have bought, but the 
athletic fund would be minus approx- 
imately $1000 if the four thousand 
students on campus did not have 
enough school spirit to give. 

If a campaign for raising money 
were handled in the right way, it 
could bring substantial results. En- 
thusiastic people, interested whole- 
heartedly in the fund and having 
enough time to devote to the work, 
could be put at the head of each 
dorm or house. Posters everywhere 
could be used to keep students con- 
stantly aware of the campaign. Ap- 
peals could be broadcast over WMUA. 
Right now before second semester ex- 
penses start coming would be a good 
time to start a project: if we wait 
for others to build up a football team 
for us, we'll never have one. I hope 
you continue to use your influence in 
setting the fund on its feet by means 
of dances, collections, radio appeals.

university and that it is in a position 
to render service to the entrie stav 
states Mr. Driver. The facilities as 
they are set up are rendering numer- 
ous and adequate services to con. 
munities, for example, through n 
tension agencies in agriculture 
in work in sociology. 

First Teaching Work 

His work at the University ha.* 
be.n Mr. Driver's first OMWiertkl 
with college teaching, but he ha.. 
quickly won popularity among 
students and those who know him. He 
beli. ves that the main enjoyment | 
the work comes from relating teach- 
ing to practical work and to benefit! 
derived by students shown, for ex- 
ample, by their interest in visits t 

He feels that "students will deveiopl 
fewer frustrations when they carl 
visualize the academic informatiorl 
gathered in a classroom. In generil 
interest is high on campus in th- 1 
pursuit of learning and this is sufficl 
ent reward for the person in academic! 

"But above all, students should a. | 
tempt to understand that the tearii| 
er is essentially interested in *.h» 
achievements of his students." 


Dear Sir: 

'S about time somebody did some- 
thing about the bulletin board in 
North College! 

It is creating frustrated students 
like me. Yesterday I was looking for 
a ride to Ketchican, Alaska, and it 
>ok me over an hour to read all 
those scraps of paper. I was knocked 
down and stomped on several times 
besides being pinned to the wall by 
the swinging door. And no ride! 

.My suggestion is this: that 3 x 5 
inch filing cards be placed on the sta- 
tionery counter in the U Store for 
the use of student advertisers, propa- 

gandists, etc. That the bulletin boar 
be divided into sections such 
Rides, For Sale, Club Meeting", M 
That the notices be dated and a Bu 
letin Board Committee be appointed 
by the Senate to remove them aft* 
say a period of two weeks (Tm 
would also remove any notices M 
conforming to the regulations o^ 
size and correct placement.) 

This may be against the economl 
laissez-faire-ists who resist "govern! 
mental regulation." But wouldn't ij 
be an all-around better system thai 
the present free enterprise way 
posting notices?

Dear Sir: 

We, the undersigned, wish to enter 
our protest against the outrageous 
prices we are being charged for our 
senior pictures. Why is it that last 
year pictures that were six for $7.00 
are now three for $11.00? Has the 
cost of photographic supplies risen 
ra much since last year? Our opin- 
ion is that we are being "taken". 

A check of a couple of studios, one 
in Northampton and one in Spring- 
field showed prices much lower than 
we are paying. For instance, the stu- 

dio in Springfield for $7.00 gives you 
three 8x10 pictures, one of them in 
color. For $11.00 all we can get are 
three 5x7 pictures. 

The present senior class has close 
t<> 1200 students, and we are willing 
to bet that any of the local studios 
will give us better pictures at much 
better prices. 

Who is responsible for this state 
of affairs? Why weren't the students 
given a chance to choose their own 
photographer? . . . 

Signed by Fifty Members 
of the Class of 1950. 


Tf the Editor: 

Members of the Purchase Carl 
Committee made excellent posters 
for their publicity campaign. Several 
of our best posters have been re- 
moved from campus bulletin boards. 

If there were time limits on post- 
ers, I can see why they would be tak- 
en away. But I think it's a shame 
when people remove posters for no 
reason at all.

U M Hoop Squad Loses Norskey; 
Star Signs Yankee Con tract 


Lettermen Pick 
To Captain 1951 


Alex Norskey, slated to start with 
the varsity five in a guard spot, put 
u crimp in Red Ball's plans for the 
season when he signed up last Thurs- 
day with the New York Yankees 
Norskey, third high scorer last year 
and only 14 points behind the run- 
ner-up Ed McCauley, is considered 
by many to be the top player on the 
varsity both offensively and defens- 

Rumors last year had Alex sign- 
ing with the Yanks at that time, but 
a check proved the story wrong after 
it had been widely circulated unoffici- 
ally. He will not leave school to prac- 
tice with the Yanks this spring, and 
it is assumed that he will 
in this area. He has another year of 
college to complete. 

Alex led the U of M Varsity nine 
last vear in hitting when he averaged 
approximately .345 for the season. 
Hi- played summer ball in the North- 
ern League with the Keene, N.H. out- 
fit, and batted a shade under .300, a 
K ood portion of his hits for extra 

Normally a first baseman, it is ex- 
pected that the club to which he is 
assigned will transfer him to the 
outfield. Norskey was first spotted 
uhen scouts were attracted to his 
.:,00 batting average while he played 
for Gardner High School. 

In p.i-scason basketball practice, 
N o i ■ k • v demonstrated additional 
speed over last year, making him the 
fastest man on the club, and a good 
favorite for top scoring honors. His 
sign-up eliminates him not only from 
basketball, but from all collegia'.- 
sports as well. 

It was not revealed at what price 
Norskev signed, but it is believed 
that the figure was around the 
$2,000 mark. Terms of the contract 
were likewise not released. 

Last year Norskey participated in 
18 of the varsity's games— the entire 
schedule, chalking up 134 points. A 
total of T.4 field goals and 26 of 49 
foul shots made up this figure. He 
was one of the top considerations 
when this year's Captain was chosen, 
giving way in the final count to Ray 

Norskey plans to stay in shape thir, 
winter, by playing basketball with 
the "Collegians," who are slated to 
open their season this Friday nigU 
against the Amherst Legion on the 
local high school court. 

Martin Anderson, leading ground 
gainer for the UM Redmen during the 
1950 football season, was chosen to 
captain the 1951 squad at a meeting 
of lettermen held last week. 

Marty was the regular wingback in 
Tommy Eck's single wing attack th:.- 
past season and was also the leading 
ball carrier, ground gainer nd psj 
receiver. A former Palmer High ath 
lete, "Andy" is twenty-three year.- 
old and is married. He was named 
by the University of Vermont as half 
back on their all-opponent team. 

His record in ball carrying wa.s i 
mark of 5.9 yards per try, taking the 
ball 56 times for a net gain of |g 
yards. Above average speed and good 
left handed passing ability add to 
his value to the team. In addition hi- 
defensive prowess made him one of 
the few Redmen who was used on I 
defense as well as offense. 

In baseball, his only other spor..|

skey, the UM hoop squad engaged In 
their second full length scrimmage 
last Saturday at New Britain and 
were edged by the "Teachers," .">8-5G. 
This performance of the Redmen was 
a surprise to most observers for this 
was practically the same New Bri- 
tain team that had no trouble defeat- 
ing the Redmen last year. 

Offensively the Ballmen showe i 
much better markmanship than at 
any previous time this year as they 
twice came from behind to deadlock 
the ball game with their much taller 
foes. New Britain boasted two <>'•'. 

Coach Ball was favorable to the 
showing of the Redmen and was par 
ticularly impressed with the defens- 
ive backboard work of Dick Erland- 
son. Ball was also pleased with the 
manner in which his hoopsters ral- 
lied twice to wipe out large deficits. 
Johnston, Prevey and McCauley led 
the UM scoring brigade. 

In place of Norskey, who has 
signed a baseball contract and is 
hence ineligibile for further inter- 
collegiate activity, Ball started Hal 
Ostman, with Dick Erlandson alter- 
nating at that slot. Commenting on 
the loss of one of his offensive stars 
Ball stated, "we will definitely miss 
Norskey offensively but should be 
able to replace him defensively." 

The Redmen have^sfiown improve- 
ment steadily since the start of the 
practice sessions and, even though 
being nosed out by New Britain 
showed improvement over their per- 
formance against the Northampton 
Celtics. Both these scrimmage U1U 
should have the Redmen sharp foi 
their opener here with Northeaster- 
Saturday night. 

Looking Things Over

and purpose with which they dona'.

giving us a constantly growing lis'.

about but seldom act upon. Hard as 
it may be to follow the leader, It if 
a fine example for many other cam

In addition, Theta Chi's setting ol

Mr. Fitzgerald, a former de-fens.'

i Wins, 5 Losses 
For Cross Count 

The four seniors who ran their lastj 
cross-country meet in the ICAAA.' 
in New York on November 21 J 
members of the University of Ma&J 
achusetts Varsity Cross-CountrJ 
squad are: Whitey Cossar, Louia 
dough, Ed Funkhouser, and 

These four men are veteran rur.l 
ners, having won four letters each 
well as medals and gold shoes. It u* 
mainly through the efforts of thesf 
four men that the U. of M. enjoye 
four consecutive successful seasorj 
in cross-country. 

Under the wartime eligibility rnhj 
in 194G, these four runners as fresh 
men were permitted to participate

season with four wins and one los

really made record-breaking historj 
by winning all of their six mwtj

U. of M. cross-country history. T)W 
also set another record for the U«l 
versity by placing second in the Net 
England Championships which as! 
held each year at Franklin Park 

In 1948 the squad won five out 
six meets, losing by a one-point mil 
gin to Northeastern. The Derbyr 
again placed second in the New Erj 

This year the U. of M. harriers 
feated Northeastern by a wide m» 
gin of 8 points and ended the seas 
by winning half of their duel me 
against some of the strongest teai; 
in the East. In summing up the hi 
tory of the cross-country for the la 
four years we find a record of 
wins in 23 duel meets. This is a I 
ord with which Coach Derby WW 
team are well-pleased.

Future Breeders Return From 
Chicago Show 

This year for the first time, S.S.A. 
boys attended the Chicago Interna- 
tional Livestock Show. Here the group 
saw some of the finest animals on 
four feet in various classes of swine, 
sheep, and horses. As one student ex- 
pressed it, they saw the animals in 
the textbook, in person. 

The boys had a chance to visit with 
famous breeders and get helpful ideas 
for future reference. They also visited 
the famous Hawthorne Melody Farm 
and Allied Feed Research Farm. A 
conducted tour of the Swift and Co. 
plant proved very interesting, as did 
a trip to the Chicago Arts and Sci- 
ences Museum and the Field Museum. 
Stewart Johnson took movies of the 
trip, which will probably be shown at 
some future meeting of the An. Hub. 

As a matter of purely academic in- 
terest, the boys report that Chicago 
boasts quite a few night clubs. 

The trip proved extremely valuable 
experience, and it is hoped that more 
excursions of the sort may be made

The University of Massachusetts 
chapter of the Intercollegiate Zionist 
Federation of America presented two 
albums of Hebrew records to the 
University of Massachusetts Music 
Library, last Friday. 

In making the presentation for 
IZFA, Cultural chairman Harry Star 
said, "It is hoped that, in some small 
way, these records will contribute to 
the students' wider knowledge and 
understanding of the Hebrew culture 
which is now undergoing a renais- 

In accepting the gift on behalf of 
the school, Doric Alviani, acting head 
of the Department of Fine Arts ex- 
pressed his gratitude and pointed out 
that the university is deeply interest- 
ed in obtaining records of all diversi- 
fied cultures, but because of the lim- 
itations of the budget, had been un- 
able to do so. 

The two Hebrew albums presented 

were, Songa of Israel and New 
Songs of Palestine, both of which 
capture the spirit of work, pride, 
hope and determination of the people 
from the new Israel. Sh*er Haaimck 
(Song of the Valley) depicts the in- 
tense pride and love the chalutzim 
(pioneers) have of their accomplish- 
ments in the Valley of Jezrael. In- 
cluded also is the famous and stir- 
ring Sheer Hapartisan (Song of the 
Partisan), written originally in the 
Yiddish by Jewish Resistance fight- 
ers in Europe, and now sung in He- 
brew in Israel. The sober Anee Mao- 
min (I Believe) sung by Jews as they 
were forced into gas chambers and 
crematoriums reflected their faith in 
the future even as they faced death. 
These and others represented in the 
albums are but a small part of th< 
tremendous musical output coming 
from the heart of a people buildinp 
and recreating a new land.

YOU'D never guess to see him now, but just two weeks ago 
there was a sad, forlorn look in Sheedy's beady eyes. People 
picked on him because his hair looked like he was moulting. 
Not a gal on campus would even carrion a conversation with 
him. Then he bought a bottle of Wildroot Cream-Oil hair 
tonic and he's been a gay old bird ever since. Non-alcohr' - 
Wildroot containing Lanolin keeps hair neat and well-groo 
all day long. Relieves annoying dryness, removes the k 
ugly dandruff that can make you a social outcast. So if yoi.r 
hnir is giving you trouble, set your corpse for the nearest drug 
or toilet goods counter and get a bottle or tube of Wildroot 
Cream-OO hair tonic. And ask your barber for professional 
app'.ir ions. It's the best treatment your hair cadaver get.

Inhumanities of Dean's Saturday 
Exposed by Collegian Reporter 

By Jim Powers 

A bleak winter wind wails across 
the campus. The eerie silence is brok- 
en by an occasional pistol shot, or 
the sound of a body falling to earth 
us from a great distance. Mingled 
with the voice of the wind a lost soul 
cries out from some abysmal Purga- 

Dean's Saturday is close at hand. 

Muffled figures scurry on their way, 
unmindful of the supplicating hands 
stretched forth from the depths of 
despondency. Pleas for mercy fall on 
carefully muffled ears. 

Trepidations of immorality* fill the 
hearts of the chosen as they crush 
and strain, like those story-book ro- 
dents of Hamlin, to learn their fate. 
And then, tears of helpless terror 
frozen on their stricken faces, head in 
hands, they stumble away. 

Dean's Saturday is upon us.

vellian laughter issuing from the

program's success. From the brilliant 
"Hallelujah Amen" by Handel to the 
precision singing of Gershwin's "I 
Got Rhythm" the program was ex- 
cellent. Dick Rescia accompanied 
most of the songs and Miss Jocelyn 
Dugas entertained with piano solos 
during intermission. 

Octet Program 

The second program was presented 
Tuesday evening and featured the 
"Valley Octets." The Statesmen, af- 
ter doing their three numbers, intro- 
duced each group with short pieces 
from their school songs. The Mt. Hol- 
yoke and Smith girls were invited to 
dinner, before the program, by two 

The joint faculty concert on Wed- 
nesday was highlighted by faculty 
members from Mt. Holyoke, Smith 
and the University of Massachusetts. 
The most noticeable feature of the 
program was the fact that not one 
selection played was a trite or over- 
worked piece. 

Judging from these past programs, 
the remainder of the "Holidays" 
should be well worth attending.

U M Chorus Christmas Cone 
To Keynote Campus Carolings 

This evening, the University Chorus will present the second 
performance of Handel's "Messiah". Tonight as last night, the 
program will be broadcast over station WACE in Springfield. It 

will undoubtedly be decided to con

tinue annually this event which was 
discontinued during the war. Sta- 
tion WHAI in Greenfield will also 
broadcast the program tonight. 

Last Sunday afternoon, the Roches- 
ter Philharmonic Orchestra ended 
this semester's series of professional 
concerts. Although the crowd of 2000 
was not nearly as large as at most 
concerts, the decrease seemed to be 
the result of the presentation on a 
weekend and to the poor weather. 
However, most of those who did at- 
tend, thoroughly enjoyed the excellent 
program which Erich Leinsdorf pre- 

With the exception of the Rochester 
Philharmonic Orchestra and the pro- 
duction of the "Messiah", the jazz 
concert last Monday night drew the 
largest crowd of the entire "Holi- 
day" program. Even with the capacity 
crowd there were few, if any, disap- 
pointments in the fine performance 
which is typical of this group. This 
ooncert, along with the "Messiah", 
ras selected by the Chicopee Radio 
Station to be broadcast over WACE. 

On Tuesday night, the Chowder and 
Marching Society made its first of- 
ficial campus appearance and proved 
•tself to be one of the up and coming 
University musical organizations. 
This fine "group has not only proved 
itself a success but has also reflected 
the success of the newly formed Mu- 
sic Guild.

UM Concert Band 
To Perform Jan. 5 

The University Concert Band, af- 
ter several months of rehearsals, will 
present its first concert of the year 
on Thursday, January 5 in Bowker 
Auditorium, at 8 p.m. 

Selections for the program have 
been chosen to satisfy a varied num- 
ber of musical tastes. Programming 
for the concert lists the works of 
Darius Milhaud, Edvard Grieg, 
Sousa, George Gershwin, and others. 

A novelty number titled "Calfskin 
Calisthenics" will be featured. This 
work by composer David Bennett will 
be played by Al Hixon, 11 using the
